Have your fun, but make sure education is at the forefront of your priorities. By getting an education, you can ensure a successful life.

Before your first day of classes, you should memorize your schedule and the location every place you will need to be. Figure out how long walking will take between classes. You can also find libraries or cafes on your route to study or eat lunch at if you have time.

Figure out all you can about the career you wish to pursue before you pick out your college. This will guarantee the courses needed for the degree you want to get are offered by the college. Speak with an admissions director to be sure that they offer the classes you have to take.

Join organizations around campus. By participating in a variety of activities, you will have a better resume for future employment applications. Don't overwhelm your schedule, though.

Get a bus pass. You might discover the commute is not any longer than by driving. In fact, you can even save some time because you don't have to search for an available parking space. If you want to drive your own car, expect to pay for a parking pass. Using public transportation is also a more environmentally friendly option.

If you are attending a college in another state, or if you are going to live in the dorms, think twice before bring your car. Many larger cities have limited free parking areas. Registration, gas and insurance can also prove challenging if you do not have a job.

Taking notes during class is necessary to get the information needed to pass your class. The act of note writing helps solidify the information as you hear it. This will allow you to remember more later when you have to study. While you may think you know it all, write it down just in case.

When you are creating your schedule of classes, try not to pack too many classes into one semester. Too many classes can overwhelm you and create stress. If you do, you'll get lower grades. If you have to take five classes, choose two hard ones and three easy options.

Make sure to pay off your credit card balance each month if you have one. If not you will incur late fees and other penalties. In general, you should try and only use your credit card for emergencies. Use your need to focus on academics to keep from using the card for frivolous endeavors. If you are having issues with money, it might distract you from your studies.

You will want to squeeze every drop of goodness out of your years in college.
