PRO-TIPS
DO...arrive at your classes early
DON'T... be afraid to talk to the people next to you
DO...introduce yourself to your professor
You won't want to be the person walking in late on the first day. Added bonus... Getting to class early ensures a good seat!
You never know-- having a casual conversation with the person next to you could prove to be helpful for future group projects or study groups!
hey!
Professors are impressed with students who introduce themselves on the first day- and it makes it easier to go into office hours later if you need to. Don't forget to express how much you are looking forward to the upcoming semester!
DO SOMETHING YOU ENJOY
Take the time to read for pleasure, exercise, or listen to some music. We all need some personal time.
TAKE A WALK
Going for a walk is great exercise, plus you will become more familiar with campus!
REMEMBER TO BREATHE
Sometimes just taking a minute to center yourself is all you need. Whether it's practicing yoga, meditation or just taking a few deep breaths, find what works best for you.
REACH OUT AND ASK FOR HELP
If it ever seems like too much, ask for some help. Finding supportive friends and family, along with utilizing mental health resources on campus, can be beneficial.
ONLY A PHONE CALL AWAY...
Having the option to call your family and friends, over the phone or even Skype, can be a great reminder of all the people supporting you.
WRITE LETTERS & EMAILS
Sometimes writing home can make you feel closer. Plus you are sure to end up with some letters in your own mailbox!
