Tips for the freshman student

Provided By:

(NC)-Starting university or college for the first time can be a daunting experience for new students. To help make the transition as easy as possible, the back to school team at Canadian Tire has put together the following tips to ensure students are prepared for the best year possible.

Stay organized

Most post-secondary institutions give students a welcome package that often includes an agenda for the year. Take advantage of this tool and use it to track upcoming assignments, readings, exams and social engagements. Tip: Keep a separate notebook or different coloured binder for each subject. This will make for easy reference and help to keep class notes separate and organized.

Be a tech-savvy student

If you plan to purchase a computer, ensure that you do the proper research first. Look for a computer that has the programs and capabilities you require for your program of study. A basic office package with a word processing program is an essential for most students. If you don't plan to purchase a computer, most schools have computer centres that are centrally located on campus and have convenient hours for evening and weekend homework sessions. Tip: Always use a USB key or Jump Drive to back up your work to avoid losing valuable documents

Stay healthy

Staying healthy and physically fit will make you feel great and will also give you an extra boost of energy needed for studying and staying alert in class. Ensure that you have lots of healthy snacks on-hand for late night gatherings and avoid the 'freshman 15' by keeping appliances like toasters in your room for cooking healthy alternatives to cafeteria food (be sure check your school's regulations on dorm room cooking appliances.)

Get Active!

Join the school gym and make an effort to go during the week. Student life can be busy, but working in just 30 minutes of physical activity a few times a week will leave you energized and will help to relieve stress. If working out in a gym is not your thing, check out the campus calendar for intramural sports to get involved in, or keep a Frisbee or basketball in your room. Casual sports are a great way to meet new friends.
