How to Finish College without Adding More Years
Obtaining a college education can be very expensive hence finishing a four-year course in four years is a must. Regardless if you have parents that can support you or institutions that are willing to give you financial loans, do not dream of extending your stay in your university just for the fun of it.
Constantly check your grades
Do not wait for the end of the semester before checking on your professor how you are doing especially if you knew you are failing on some of your exams. If you have absences, do not just ask your classmate about what you have missed, double check it with your teacher and make sure to get a copy of the lesson you have missed.
Balance academic and extra-curricular activities
This is one of the reasons why college students needs to extend their college days. Some students just love playing sports that they practice all the time yet too tired to attend to their classes. It is nice to be a member of some clubs or join some sports but do not over do it unless you are in that college because of a sports scholarship.
Beware of the people you are going out with
They said you cannot enjoy college life if you just have three routines- home-school-library then goes back to home. The truth is, you can have fun going out with friends but make sure you are going out with the right people. You can drink from time to time but drink with people who has same line of thinking as you. Drink with people to celebrate life (birthday parties or any special occasions only) and not to ruin your chance or future (drink every day until you cannot attend classes anymore).
College life is indeed as challenging and as exciting as high school life but it comes with more responsibility because after this, you get to face the real world.
