The key to surviving college is to make a connection with your teachers! Your teachers have the power to give you an “A” or “D”. It is good to make a connection with them because you will be more comfortable asking them questions and that will help you to understand the work better. Another key to surviving college is TO DO YOUR WORK AHEAD OF TIME!! This is crucial if you want to stay on top of your grades. If something on a Wednesday but it is due on a Friday, do it on the day that you receive it and put it away. When you do this, you won’t feel under pressure to complete the assignment and you can sit back and relax while everyone else is biting the nails to get it done. This method also allows you to answer any questions about the assignment that you may have.
