The 8 Commandments Of Being A Good Student



Adjusting to college life can be a difficult and gradual process but most of us end up on the other side proud of what we have accomplished. Being a good student is easier said than done. Although this wasn’t my personal struggle, a lot of my friends who excelled in high school had difficult adjusting to the level of coursework, the demanding schedule and balancing it with the temptingly awesome social aspects of the university experience.

It can be a constant struggle but I think there are a few ways that you can make your life easier as a student. Yes, sadly it requires a bit of diligence but so do most things. Life isn’t about one or the other, it’s about both work and play. Striking a balance between those fun mixers and those lonely nights in the library is essential to not driving yourself crazy or having to cram before an exam.
