Make the Library Your Best Friend
If you are having doubts about studying from home or if you don’t have a great study area at home, the library works wonders! It can really help motivate you to stay focussed on your uni work and discourage you from watching Netflix all day. Not only can it help you overcome procrastination and escape from other distractions at home, but it has an amazing collection of old textbooks (which can save you some money to fund your semester of Merlo coffee!).
Join the Community
Most universities have a lot to offer for student social lives, such as clubs, societies, and social sports. Not only can clubs and societies be useful for networking in your industry but they’re amazing opportunities to meet other students and make new friends! After all, university is allowed to be fun and having your own friendship circle can help you live out your Hollywood university dreams, so get out there and check out what social societies and sports are offered at your campus!
Being a first-year can be scary and intimidating, but hopefully, our tips can help you settle into your next chapter of life more comfortably. For those returning for another year of studying, we wish you the best of luck adjusting from holiday mode to grind mode.
