  Whether you are a freshman just learning the ropes and taking mainly general education requirements, or a senior finishing up your degree, it is never too early to start attending your professor’s office hours. While the idea of one-on-one time with the person dishing out grades can be intimidating, remembering a few simple tips can help your experience, and ultimately—your grade.   ·      Start the semester strong. Even if your first assignment is not due for another two weeks, utilizes the time your professor has set aside for YOU. Show them the rough draft or even brainstorming stages of your essay assignment to see if you are on the right track.   ·      Come with a clear purpose. While your professor will be happy to see that you have made the effort of attending office hours, it is awkward on everyone if you show up and just start twiddling your thumbs....

  Choosing your first college apartments is a very exciting time. This is the space that you can for once call your own. You get to pick it out yourself and decorate your room. It is also one of the first steps to breaking out on your own. However, problems with roommates can quickly turn your glee into despair. With these tips, you can avoid some of the biggest roommate issues. Choose Your Roommates Wisely Just because someone is your best friend, does not mean that you will get along well as roommates. Perhaps you love partying with someone, but you do not want strangers traipsing through your house at all hours, or have a lot of people around the night before an exam that is worth approximately half of your semester grade.

        After graduating, you are expected to work and communicate effectively in teams. Consequently, most college classes assign at least one group project each semester. Group work can be a lot of fun and, as the saying goes, “many hands make light work”; however, working with different personalities and learning styles can also be challenging if you do not have a clear plan in place. Especially if the other members of your group live in noisy, cramped on-campus dormitories, it can be smart to invite your group to your apartment to work productively.

     Transportation can be one of the biggest expenses and biggest hassles in college. Between paying high parking fees and wasting time circling campus to find an available spot, alternative transportation methods are often ideal.

Most cities allow students free access to public transportation by showing their student identification card. · There is room for your bike. If you attend an especially large school where you will need your bike to get from class-to-class once you arrive on campus, not to worry. Most buses have racks in the front to easily transport bicycles.· Use this time to study. With your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road, it is hard to also concentrate on...
