But they are things that may REALLY help you out as you go back to school.
#1. Let other people answer the teacher besides you. You don't have to always hold your hand up. And limit how long you talk. Other people want to enter in.
#2. Try looking for scholarships before you are in school. You never know!
#3. If you don't have great eyesight or hearing, sit in the front - even if this is uncomfortable for you at first.
#4. TAKE NOTES if at all possible. If not, record your classes (if they are lecture-style)
#5. Make some friends.
#6. Make a study group if you need to.
#7. Think positive, this can make a difference.
#8. Don't take too many classes at once.
#9. Drop classes by the deadline, or you can really regret it.
#10. Make sure to know your prerequisites... and plan for what classes to take when. (Ask your Advisor if you are not sure... it's worth the time...)
#11. Try to have a relationship with your teacher AND at least a few of your classmates, if possible.
#12. Be friendly.
#13. Always carry a Scheduler or Calendar. Use it.
#14. Never wait for the last minute on assignments.
#15. If you have a hard time in a class, don't lose heart. You can always take it over, IF you need to.
