  • Be prepared to do a lot of reading in college.
  • Learn time management: use a calendar and plan how to use your time. Learn to manage your time while still in high school, keep a calendar of all exams and paper due dates.
  • One of the biggest transitions between high school and college is development of time management skills - students must learn to balance school and social life.
  • Be prepared to discipline yourself, as the temptation to slack could be great. If you miss four to five classes in a semester, you may fail the class.
  • Being sick affects your ability to be a student - and remember that community living contributes to the cold/flu season.
  • Learn to read - summarize and outline reading.
  • Learn to take notes in class.
  • Start the college and scholarship search as early as possible.
  • Take as many science, math, English, and foreign language courses as you can; they build a foundation for college.
  • Participate in volunteer and community service programs. It helps with scholarships!
  • Take advantage of the advanced classes offered in high school.
  • Think about what characteristics in a university are most important to you (climate, environment, degrees offered, size, location, etc.) before making a final decision about attending college.
