There are some ways that you can not only survive, but thrive in the world of college. After talking with several recent college grads, here is a look at how these people survived college.

Part 1
Kristin M., MI (Summa Cum Laude, B.S.)

You really need to balance your studies with your social life. Social life provides an outlet to relieve stress. You can make great friends as well. However, join academic clubs as well. This allows you to become connected with employers, expand your contacts, and guide you on your field of study. Go to your professor’s office and make yourself noticed. This will improve your grades, and possibly provide many letters of recommendation!”

TechChatter – 5 Programs Every College Student Needs

So anyone in college knows how expensive a computer can be. They also know how expensive programs necessary for college students are on a computer. However, I always get asked two questions: what is the cheapest word processor, and what is the best anti-virus? Here are the answers!

 

1. Office 365 for Students By Microsoft

Not only is this much cheaper than buying the full version of Microsoft Office, but it updates automatically to the latest version of office, and gives you many more options for sharing your documents between networks and computers. Also, it  comes with practically every Office product!

2. Norton Antivirus By Systematic

This is the best antivirus software out there, and for some reason college students are most likely to loose a computer due to a virus. Remember also to update your computer.

Basic Motivation

Here is a BASIC guide to getting motivated!

There are a lot of us who are always finding it hard to get motivated. Whether it be showing up to work, cleaning the house, or simply doing homework for the stupid Calculus course you have to take, sometimes finding the motivation to do things is simply impossible. However, finding motivation is easier than you think.

The first thing to realize is that you really don’t need motivation. What you need is to realize that you have to just do the arduous task, regardless of if you want to do it or not. The second thing you need to do is understand that the task will be easier, be done sooner, and also you will be less stressed if you just get it done. Now you may be reading this and saying, “I really don’t see what this is telling me to do. I want help to get motivated.” Well, that’s the sad part about motivation. It is pretty much all up on your strong will.

However, I will say there is one option. Get a friend that can help you (preferably a trusted friend). They will be like a coach, and you can work together to get the task done!
