To make your next four years memorable we provide you some handy tips to follow for your first days of university.
Keep out all your fears and start at University with fresh mindset.
This is most precious time of your life when you get all answer of your life and proceed further. Avoid all pre notions and convictions about people you meet around on your University campus. Greet them all with fresh ideas and understand their ways of life, attitude etc. Do not indulge in pre judging them, because they are as new to you as you are to them. At first you find someone behaving weird and not fit in your mentality but you may end up tomorrow being friendly with them for life long.
Don’t be a social recluse or introvert.
Be proud about your extrovert quality and showing them to your other fellows and batch mates. Believe, it is good thing to gather them around to break initial ice and make long time friendly bonding. Find the activities or play games that connect many of your friends surround. Be sociable and amiable, join flock and run your time in.
Take classes you are interested in.
Seek participation in activities you like to involve. Being International student it is worth for you to join classes of different activities. Instead of rely on your curriculum classes, If you take the opportunity to sample different subjects, you might just stumble across something even more interesting. See what else is on offer, and if you’re not sure, speak to a lecturer to get some advice.
Be Adventurous!
You can try your hand on some risks and adventures during your time at university. If you want to try mountain biking, do it! Some adventures and sports are worth to do at your college time participation. Try with motor biking, comedy stand- up or paragliding and actually do it! You may never be able to take on these adventures again, and you surely don’t want to graduate without a good stock of good stories you can tell at cocktail parties for the boring post-college life.
Have fun.
Fun fetching activities are an important part of being a student. That said, as with all things in life, moderation is key. Its seems that there are two types of people in college: those who have too much fun at the cost of bad study habits, and those who spend too much time studying at cost of no social life. Both are equally bad. So when starting university, try to find a balance between the most funs you can have, while still maintaining your decent/good grades
