    I agree with number 7, actually already graduated, but I do miss a lot of the massive amount of things to do. Actually made a video on my page about it, but the biggest thing is doing some of everything helped me figure out what I wanted to do career-wise and even on the side hustle hobby level after I graduated.

    Wait.... some people have told me to order them earlier since you can get cheaper prices and that some professors will be mad at you for not having your books.

    study tip i started adapting after my first semester (which, if your campus is big, will save you some backache from carrying around too much)
    for one, handwritten notes are ideal. though if youre like me, its hard to keep your pages legible and organized, especially when youre scribbling as fast as your professor is talking
    so instead of having separate notebooks, i always had just one that i carried with me which i put the notes for all my classes in
    then later that day, i take the time to put those notes in my "official" notebooks for the respective subjects. good way of doing some review (since its often hard to absorb the first time youre writing it down so fast) and great way of keeping organized notes

    7:37 the point about lower grades really resonated with me. the school i go to is just really challenging and possibly out of my skill level because i have to put in a ton of effort to get B+ grades, and even though it kinda sucks to get those grades after being admitted with a 4.0, i can feel how much i’m learning so its worth it.

    I register for classes on Tuesday and I am incredibly stressed over getting a good schedule. My major isn’t very common so hopefully after my third semester it won’t be too hard getting classes but those first three semesters are gonna be rough registration-wise 😬

  • SofiaTheFool

    Loved this video! The part about grades dropping struck a chord in particular. I was very much used to be a straight-A student throughout my entire school career, so getting some low grades at the beginning and at the end of the year shocked me. And when I say low, I *mean* low. However, you can always pull your grades back up, and they definitely do not reflect who you are as a person or how intelligent you are. And if it comes down it, and you have the option, go to Resit. It exists for a reason, and it isnt a shameful thing. Just make sure you are always trying your best! All in all, with all its ups and all its downs, I loved my freshman year, and I am glad that you seem to have enjoyed yours too!!

    On the lower grades topic: Cs get degrees. Unless you plan to go to grad school, don't worry too much about grades, and even then, you can leverage experience. I'm graduating in December, an almost straight-C student by this point, and have 4 jobs offers. I'm telling you, take opportunities, join clubs, do internships, get experience in your field, even if you have to push back your graduation date. It is worth it.
    Also also: Waterproof your backpack. Waterproofing spray is a thing, go buy some. Save your laptop.

    How many credit hours did you take? I am about to take 19 credit hours as a freshman in college for the fall 2018 and I'm not sure if that is too much?
    I love your videos btw, keep up the awesome content!!!

    • Jessica Murphy
      Jessica Murphy Year ago

      Cameron Golden good luck with your freshman year, and don’t forget you probably have the first two weeks to see if you took on too much. Don’t wanna drive yourself crazy your first semester.

    • Cameron Golden
      Cameron Golden Year ago

      Jessica Murphy , thank you so much for all the good advice. Looking at the syllabi and writing everything out in a planner ahead of time is a great idea. I'll make sure to do that too

    • Jessica Murphy
      Jessica Murphy Year ago

      Cameron Golden if you’ve talked to an advisor and can see yourself realistically handling the workload and doing well then stick with it. If you decide to stick with it then what I suggest is when you get your syllabi at the beginning of the semester look at the workload, assignments, grading criteria, tests, and quizzes for every class. Write it out in a planner and if it looks like too much, it most likely is. If a class has a structure you don’t like, try and change it. You can also drop a class without any record of it going on your transcript usually the first week or two weeks of class, check your school calendar. It will say last drop date with no W, or something similar. A W doesn’t effect your GPA but if you accumulate many, like you drop two classes a semester than it can start to look bad. My freshman year I was so scared of dropping a class because I thought it meant I wasn’t good enough so I stayed in a history class that honestly wasn’t structured for me...that B haunts me. Sorry if my response is long, just wanna hell you out if I can

      Jessica Murphy, I am a chemical engineering major and I am on the premed track as well. I am taking Honors Chemistry 1 (with chemistry lab) (tot. 4 credits), Honors Calc 1 (4 credits), Honors History to 1877 (3 credits), English 1 (with a mandatory discussion class) (tot. 3 cred hr), Chemical Engineering seminar (1 credit), psychology (3 credits), and a mandatory (1 credit) Honors FYE class

    • Jessica Murphy
      Jessica Murphy Year ago

      Cameron Golden 19 is a high number for a freshman. If you take 15 a semester you’re on track to graduate on time. It can be overwhelming if your first semester you’re taking so many classes since you’ll have to adjust to the work load. The only people who usually take that many are those who are behind on credits and have to catch up. Five classes are recommended. What classes are they?

    I’ve been watching your videos since about my sophomore year in high school... I’m starting college this fall and your videos have been so helpful to me. Love this one in particular because it literally made me feel soooo EXCITED for college to start!!! I’m playing soccer for the schools team, have found my friend group online, and have met/ talked with my future professors several times. Thank you for all of the lovely tips, I’ll have to keep them in mind. My type A personality seems similar to yours, but I’ve been trying to love with the motto “No Regrets” and its been working so far. Anyways, sorry for the paragraph lol. But another college video(s) I’d love to see is something about dorm room essentials, the school supplies you brought or bought for college, and/or a list of stuff that is usually forgotten on the college list. Thanks!

    These tips really helps! Thank you!! You said you're still in band even in college, how was your experience with that? I'm thinking of auditioning for the orchestra, but the audition happens even before classes start, so I'm not too sure about joining when I don't know anything about what's going on with university.

    Please enjoy your time in college people , *Live In The Moment* , don't just live those 3/4 years in a hurried manner going from home/hostel to college and then back home .
    Just staring at your books and not looking at the beautiful sky even once will make you regret it .
    Grades are important but so is to *Live Happily* .
    I still don't know what I did during my days in college .... ( I simply did not experience anything fully and happily ) , now I'm going to get back to studies next year , hopefully this time I will try and *live , enjoy every moment , living life slowly , observing the good things around me , thanking God for all the opportunities* :)

    Also, *USE RATE MY PROFESSOR!!!!!* I cannot stress this enough. In high school you can’t choose what teacher you’re going to have but in college you have the option to go through every professor teaching your subjects and look up who you think will be the best option for you. I’ve used Rate My Professor to avoid teachers whose classes I probably would’ve struggled with (heed students’ warnings because they’re often very accurate) and was able to locate the classes I really enjoy 😊

    I wish we weren’t the same age so I could actually apply all of these amazing ideas 😩

    I highly disagree with the way you phrased that if you are getting high grades you are not in a rigorous school, or you are not in the right learning environment. The letter grade has nothing to do with rigor. It is the effort you put into your school work. I agree, if the work seems easy and you're not being challenged that is a problem, but getting A's and B's in college does not mean your work is easy. Some people work their butts off, and that work should not be discredited.

    The ‘lower grades are usual’ point was something i wished i knew before high school. I’m not from the usa so your school is decided on what level you do. When i got a 7 for my first test i was sooo confused😅

    tomorrow is my last day of my first semester of my first year, so here's to hoping i can incorporate these tips for the remainder of my year!
    i wish someone had warned me about the grades lower than what you expected. It's such a shock
    some tips that i've gotten from older students/experience:
    1) share your resources if you know someone needs help. you never know when you might also need assistance. Also, you're gonna be together for a long time and life's too short to not be generous
    2) University is a big adjustment so don't worry if you feel out of your element. Try different ways of studying and taking notes to ensure that when you stick to one you know it's really beneficial
    3) some people learn better from lecture notes, whereas others learn better from the textbook. If you know you aren't paying attention in lectures, maybe skip it and use that time to go through the textbook and look over the lecture videos afterwards
    4) Life and university is not a race. You may need to repeat a semester or repeat a year or even change your course. And that's okay!!
    5)Don't compare yourself to others!
