Want to improve your student record, grades, and test scores? Pick up a habit. We have 7 habits that can make a big difference in your education and make you a more successful student.
1. Go to class. It might seem obvious, but just showing up can be a big part of student success. As Woody Allen said, “Seventy percent of success in life is showing up.”
2. Ask questions. If you don’t ask, you’re missing out on an opportunity to learn something and clear up confusion. You’re there to learn—so don’t be afraid to go to teachers and other students with questions.
3. Take good notes. Don’t say, “I don’t need to, I’ll remember everything.” Not only are good notes an excellent study reference, but they are also a great way to re-enforce the lesson.
4. Use a planner. Whether it’s electronic or a written assignment book, planning out your calendar with deadlines will ensure that you complete all assignments on time and use time effectively.
5. Get involved. Joining in on campus activities like sports and clubs teach you important life skills, help you make friends, and boost your confidence.
6. Know your professors. Take advantage of office hours; participate in class and make sure your professors know who you are. That way, you’re more than just a number.
7. Stay healthy. Be conscious of your health; get enough sleep, eat nutritiously, and exercise regularly. You’ll learn best when you feel best.
