Here are my top three tips for post-secondary or university!
- Talk to your profs: As scary as going to your prof’s office hours *alone* may seem, it’ll be totally worth it. Getting to know them is really useful for references later, and getting help on content first hand is incredibly helpful. Since I’m at a small university, this is a lot easier since my profs remember me anyways, but I still have to put in the effort to talk to them.
- Learn how to study and write: University is a lot harder if you don’t know what types of study methods work for you. Writing is incredibly important for academic writing, so you’ll need to pick up that skill fast. Check out your campus for resources that can help you, for example, my university has a writing center to help students.
- Get involved: You’ll probably hear this so many times it hurts, but join a few clubs and societies. You don’t have to go to every meeting, but even being informed by being on an email list doesn’t hurt. I personally have joined a few societies, and the extra lectures and events they facilitate have been pretty cool and enlightening!
