There are two notable parts to university success. The first is academic and obviously very important. If you’re wondering how to consistently score great grades then be sure to check out The Good Grades Guide.
The second part isn’t discussed as much but it’s nearly as important: A large part of your university success is determined by what you take away when you have completed your degree.
University isn’t just about that piece of paper but also the friendships and contacts you’ve formed, the memories you’ve made, the skills you’ve gained, and the amount you have grown as a person. When you think back to your university experience you don’t want to think, “Well, all I really got was a piece of paper.”
Take the time to get out, go for coffee, join groups, and get involved. Chase your passions and do your best to gain skills not just in the classroom, but outside as well.
Through it all never forget that balance is key. You can’t socialize all the time and conversely you can’t lock yourself in a room and study 24/7 without going absolutely insane. It is essential that you find the spot between doing well and having fun.
Besides, you can have fun and still slam out A’s consistently, just ask Justin.
