Learning does not only occur inside the classroom walls. I find that I am a student in nearly every facet of my life. In fact, some of the most important lessons are learned in how you communicate and relate to people. Now, I'm sure your question is more for how to do well in school, and I agree with those who have already answered. Being a good student takes a tremendous amount of self-discipline. You have to commit to being a responsible student and fulfilling the expectations of your instructors. On a sunny day when it's warm out, you'll find it's very hard to attend class or finish your assignments but it's critical to your success. Remember, school is one of the first places where you can establish yourself and create a reputation. It is very difficult to change first impressions if you're known as untimely or undependable. Those qualities will begin to spill into other areas of your life. Good luck!
