Good Vs. Bad Habits of a College Students

What are good habits and bad habits of a college students. As early as childhood education we develop good and bad habits. In early education like in elementary we usually have early classes like waking up early in the morning. Unlike in college you there is blocking or choosing of subjects like you want to choose a class that is not too early in the morning. Waking up late can be a bad habit if you have early classes. Classes can go early as 6 pm for physical education subjects but normally 7:30 in the morning for most subjects. It is lucky to have a class not early in the morning if you are not a morning person. If you are a morning person then an early class in the morning is not a big problem. Making assignments too late is not a good practice and sometimes we forget to make assignments. It happen sometimes. Notes are important especially to remind us of homework or assignment. An educational video is made at the right side and it is hosted in Youtube and you might want to view it as an inspirational and educational video. Having a part time job can be a good part and you have to keep healthy as you try to cope up with the subject while having a part time job. A student assistant can be an option for those who want to support themselves but there would be more application of students surely for it.


How Long Will You Graduate?

Bachelors degree course is usually four years unless it is trimesters then 4 year course can be taken up to 3 years that is provided that you had passed all the subjects. Repeating or failing a subject can be a depressing experience. You have to study hard in order not to fail. It would be such a waste of time and money.
