6 things you need to know as a fresher

It's a new day. It's a new life. And these tips will keep you feeling good!
BY BrainGain Magazine Staff Writer |   13-08-2021

This is advice for the students who will be lucky enough to start a new year at the university this fall. If you’re moving countries or even cities – you’re at the start of a new chapter. It will be fun, overwhelming and unforgettable. But here are 6 points to keep in mind.

  1. Your bank balance: You’re on your own so budgeting wisely will be key. You will want to know exactly how much you can spend and keep a track. If you have a student loan, being careful will pay off in the long run. Put aside money for tuition, food, course materials and housing. Everything else comes after.

     
  2. Always ask for a student discount: This is related to the point above. Wherever you go – whether it’s an Apple store or a grocer’s, ask if they have a student discount. Many places do. And it helps make everything more affordable. The deals are often the envy of everyone who is not a student. So don’t miss out!

     
  3. Homesickness is normal: This is a big step that you’re taking. And leaving everything you’ve known behind takes courage. Perhaps the first few days or months will be challenging. Don’t hesitate to call your family and friends back home. But, make sure to connect with the people around you as well. These could be your housemates, your classmates or just people you keep running into. University life will be so much the better for it!

     
  4. You can make your own club: Investing in your special skill or interest and sharing it with like-minded people is an incredible experience. If you’re up for it, you should fill a few forms, and then find people to sign on as members of your club or society. Not only will it be fun but it will be a great learning experience.

    Also, it’s a valid point to add to your resume – one that shows initiative and drive.

     
  5. Stay awake in lectures: There will be parties. There will be trips. There will be sleepless night. But after fresher’s week or fresher’s month you will have to get on with it. Be organized about your lectures. Attend them. Stay awake. Make notes. And you will have laid a solid foundation for the next three or four years. That’s what you’re in college for, right?

     
  6. Think ahead: The first year is very much about finding your flow. You will learn more about yourself than you have in several years. However, it is also a sound idea to think ahead. Visit the Careers Office at university. Think about getting involved in projects that might help with career goals. Figure out your accommodation for the next year or so. And get a part-time job for the experience and the cash.
     
All the best!

No public records, only 3 open Accts but several collection Accts with Zero Balances, few Weeks ago, I ran into some Credit blogs on the net which led me to CYBER CREDIT GURU the most talked about US based Russian hacker, who tremendously repaired and upgraded my credit score to 784, 789, and 802 within the 3 Bureaus in just a Week after I contacted him.

I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via his contact details; Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(650) 499 5548, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved, I can now give my kids better life. If you need to hire a hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
