The number one thing you should know and also have at the back of your mind before setting out for your new journey to university is;
- Accommodation: Where to live matters because where to keep your head and belongings will have a lot to do with your settlement in school. Ensure you know if you will stay with someone or have your own apartment (for schools without a hostel). Be settled about your accommodation and make it like a home to avoid being homesick.
- Keep to Lecture Attendance: As a newbie that is just leaving secondary school for university, there is a possibility that you always lead your class, but you should now understand that you will now be in the midst of other intelligent students and with this, you should be able to keep up the good record by not getting carried away. Ensure you are punctual in attending lectures and doing your assignment because you will still have a lot to achieve as the university will present to you many opportunities to experience new things and learn.
- Relate With People With an Open Mind: University is a place where you will meet different people of different tribes, culture and so on. You will have to keep an open mind with people because it will open you to many opportunities.
- Spend Wisely: Money management is one of the things you should keep to heart as a new university student as you will now have the freedom on how and how not to spend money. Wise spending will help you acquire necessary things, and this will help avoid wasteful spending because if you waste money, you will have to suffer for it when you have nothing left to meet your necessary needs.
- Be Active: With all the goals to achieve as a student, getting involved in some social activities will be of great benefit to you because this will broaden your sphere of influence and get you employment opportunities after school.
- Work Hard: Irrespective of the freedom you will be exposed to in the university, do well to keep sight of your primary purpose by not neglecting your academics. Be determined to work hard to achieve great success.
- Put Up Good Manners: The university is where you will meet people who deserve honour and respect. The honour you give to people cannot be too much, and this new environment will be a platform or an avenue to present yourself as an honourable person.
- Don’t give up: It is likely many will not tell you the kind of challenge you will face along the line. Since you will now be on your own, some decisions are to be taken. In facing these challenges, learn not to give up, keep the good spirit of excellence.
- Make The Best Out of Your Time: Enjoy yourself, stay focus, be at the right place at the right time and do what is needful and explore.
