Freshman Experience

There are many different values to one's freshman year experience. Freshman year is the most important year because it is a major transition from intermediate school to high school level which is a struggle for most. What one does during their freshman year affects one's senior year by building up one's work ethics and experiences. During freshman year, one has to learn how to manage one's time at home and at school, how to study, and when and how to get help.
One of the most vital things about freshman year is learning how to manage one's time at home and at school. One should try to prioritize one's weekly schedule. Education and academic studies must come first, then extracurricular activities, and then social life.   Writing down what one has to do over the week, like the exact due dates for assignments, homework, projects, and events in a planner, helps keep everything organized. Setting a time limit on how long one has to study for each class can help make sure one does not spend too much time on one subject and forget to do several others before one goes to sleep. Make sure one has gotten enough hours of sleep each day. Not getting enough sleep may cause one to start slacking off in class and become lazy because one wants to sleep. Don't neglect one's health just because one doesn't have enough time. One should eat nutritious foods and exercise for 30 minutes every day.
Another essential thing about freshman year is to know how to study. Try to go to a quiet place or the library to study. Avoid studying in the bedroom, dimly lit rooms, or where a television set is nearby, as this will make one too sleepy to get anything done or will get distracted. Self studying or independent studying is one way to learn something, but just reading out of a textbook the whole time won't always help one learn the material. Studying with a group of friends or having study session might help one learn the material better. One can have someone quiz them or help one practice...
