Well Everyone, whether we have just begun first year or are beginning another year of university, we have made it through Month One!
I have learned so much in four weeks! First being, getting lost is entirely normal. I have to admit that trying to read the room directions was not the easiest beginning to my university adventure, but I got there in the end.
Over four weeks I’ve learned my four main ‘survival’ tips to surviving this adventure…
1- Always do your pre- lecture/tutorial reading. (Lecturers love for you to know not just what they are talking about, but know that they can both discuss and debate with their students)
2- Get lunch before classes! (Tesco’s can turn into a game of Maze almost every hangry student is wanting food!
3- In tutorials, ask questions and don’t be afraid to speak! You got into university with your knowledge, so show it!
4- Spend your free time with family and/or good friends! You have no idea how much this can support you and your mental health!
So guys!… Congratulations on making it!
