1. Drinking Coffee to Stay Awake

In college, you will often find yourself up late at night. Sometimes you will be awake at three in the morning coming back from a party, and in this case, the first thing you want to do is to head to your bed and sleep in until the early morning.

2. Repeating College Courses

Sometimes taking a college course only once is a pain, but imagine having to take it for a second time? This is not uncommon in college and a main reason why students end up having to take summer courses or wind up staying for more than four years. Something that students tend to forget is that one way or another the school is going to get paid for those courses. You will either have to pay now or later, so wouldn’t it just be better for you if you only took and paid for it once? This can be easier said than done, but trust me taking it again just is not worth it.

6. Make Yourself Irreplaceable

With all of the courses available in college, schools should begin to stress the importance of being a valued employee. This seems like common sense, but many students are clueless as to how to go about doing this once they get into the real world. Showing a company that you are irreplaceable is a hard task and although no one is really irreplaceable you can at least make it hard for the company to do so.

7. Where Do You Want To Be?

Knowing what you want out of a life is a big decision to make. Everyone realizes what they want in life at different times, but many have whiffs of where they would like to be during college. The issue here is that people change and so do hopes and dream. There is nothing you can do about your changing feels, but when you have a strong feeling about something you should jump on it. If you are one of those people whose dreams change every month, you might want to reevaluate where you are in your life now and where you see yourself in the future.

A mistake many students seem to make is attending school with the intention of just graduating. When you first enter college, graduating should be part of the natural process, so why make that your main plan? Students should develop plans that are much more in-depth than graduating. These plans do not have to be made alone. Advisors can be of great assistance if given the chance.

9. Patience is a Virtue after College

It is not a secret that college students have no patience. They are continuously rushing and becoming agitated with those making them late for the next class, next appointment, or next available time to boil some noodles and study. Once college is over, students have to gain a better perspective on life and realize even though it was their time while in college, it is no longer as self-involved. Once graduated, students need to bow to the demands of a career and their new superiors. Adjusting to this can cause personal turbulence but the sooner it is learned the sooner they will be acclimated with their new demeanor in life.

10. Jump-Start Your GPA

You could be a straight A student or a B and C student; no matter which one you are it is always nice to have a way to boost your GPA.
