Pay attention during class

One of the easiest things you can do to prepare for a test is pay attention during class. Sometimes, the professor will flat out say, “This will be on the test” (or better yet, “this won’t be on the test”) or give other hints as to what will be on the test.

The best way to make friends in college is to join extracurriculars. You can join extracurriculars inside and outside of school.

Be consistent when working out.

The best way to form a habit is to be consistent. Working out on a certain day of the week and at a certain time makes it easier to keep up the habit. Take a look at your schedule and pick a day of the week (or multiple days of the week) and time that you can commit to working out every week. Make sure to write it down in your planner and mark yourself as “busy” during those hours.
