1. Know why you are there: You have to ask yourself what brought you to the school? Some go to the university because they want to leave the claws of their parents. Some go to the university because their friends are going too. Are you there to learn something and become useful or you are there just for fun? If you know why you are there, then you can be truly prepared to do what it takes to succeed.
