Most semesters have started already, but there are still things you can do to prepare for the first weeks of class.

1. INVEST IN A PLANNER/CALENDAR–Write down ALL of the due dates (in pencil-so it is easier to change). You then have the opportunity to plan your own mini-deadlines for big projects.

2. WRITE DOWN IMPORTANT INFORMATION- While it sounds vague, write down where the class is, what times/days, who the professor is, and the course title on the folder/notebook you’ll use. Then you don’t have to worry about forgetting where your class is. Plus, if you leave your book somewhere, a person could drop it off in the classroom.

3. HAVE FUN- Try to enjoy all of your courses, even the ones that are difficult. Use a different color pen or some other way to entertain yourself throughout the semester.
