Hopefully, you’re aware that University education is not complex, only sluggish. Thus, do not procrastinate at the beginning of the coming year; it will keep you from becoming adrift, prevent you from being outrun by your professor, and be overwhelmed by a flood of class material.
New Year’s Resolutions For Students
Be your driving force.
There is not much spoon-feeding at this level. It is up to you to use the course outline as a guiding post and cover the relevant ground in the reference material.
Work with boring professors.
You may subject yourself to the mass depredations of zombie lecturers, but do not give in to the temptation of lumping the course with its annoying lecturer and detest it. Instead, disconnect the system from its unappealing instructor and remember that it is of transcendent worth in your professional life.
Build a foundation for next year
First-year programs are the frame on which second-year courses are built. Thus, first-year students do not study a course whose passing of midterm and final exams happens as an end-goal. Instead, keep in mind the system is a mentoring pillar for your upcoming classes and your profession.
Measure your performance in a detached and unbiased way
Your enthusiasm will be protected against teachers who will grade you unfairly. You can also differentiate yourself from other students, for whom your “A” denotes teacher and your “F” indicates student.
