Mike,

Similar to Hannah's response, college is ultimately finding a balance between your social and academic interests - and what will ultimately enable you to achieve your goals. In terms of prioritizing academic matters, consider how you structure your class schedule. Many universities provide for their courses to be offered at different times of the day during the week. For people that struggle with getting up in the morning, those early morning classes sometimes become a challenge. Consider what would work best with your learning style in terms of setting your class schedule (as well as the goals you have in terms of when you would like to graduate, as a lighter course load in one semester may cause you to have to take a heavier course load in a later semester to stay "on track").

On the social front, most universities have a wide range of clubs, groups, and events to allow you to connect with others who have similar interests.

I found what worked best for me was to study for my courses on a routine basis each day (typically Sunday through Thursday), allowing me to understand the course materials and complete my course work, while also providing me the flexibility on Friday evenings and Saturday to have a social life and connect with friends.

Hannah’s Answer

Hi Mike,

College is a great experience both socially and academically. Take the time to get to know your classmates, the city your school is in, and explore you academic options by taking a range of different types of classes. Knowing your learning style is important when picking the right school or class for you - some schools are huge and have a wide range of majors available while other schools are smaller and may have a more focused collection of degrees offered. Classes also come in many different formats - some are large lecture halls with 100+ students where the professor lectures and there is little interaction from students, some can be large classrooms with some interaction between professor/students, some can be smaller discussion based classes, vocational classes, lab classes etc. Knowing the best environment for yourself both socially and academically will help you pick the best place for you.
