However, centuries of student experience show that college life can be much more dangerous and stressful than even wild nature for some individuals. Usually, not only shy and unsocial students need to learn behavioral basics before getting to campus; even people considered to be the life and soul of a party should consider them as well.

No matter whether you are anxious about the first day in a college and campus or not, the following hacks are equally important for everybody.

Tips for Surviving Your First Day in College

With these top recommendations on what to do and how to behave in college or on campus from the very beginning of a study, you will be absolutely ready for every little trouble. Make your study enjoyable and fun enough instead of getting stressed about it!
To achieve that and love a happy college life, you may need to follow the next hacks:

1.  Independence in every little thing! As soon as you have left your parents and found yourself alone together with experienced students, learn how to survive by yourself. In other words, now you have to pass a test for a driving license (if you haven’t got one), learn the city where you are going to study, and keep an eye on your belongings and funds in order not to spend everything in a blink.

2.  Loud noises! Your campus may be packed to capacity and the great number of people will produce a lot of noise day and night. However, you have to sleep well to be able to cope with any task and not to drop out of a college or university in the first semester. Besides, sleep is food for brain according to the National Sleep Foundation. That is why it is better to buy some earbuds not to be disturbed.

3. The look of your dorm room makes you feel sorry for leaving the parents’ house? There is a way out of it. Unpack your luggage and boxes as soon as it is possible and arrange space properly according to your wishes and likes. Make your room more comfortable for you!

4. If you have no time to prepare for your lessons or accomplish some assignments on time because of moving to a dorm room, try to find some solutions to save time and control your study before you will adjust to the college life. For example, you may order custom dissertations online or some other pieces of written works to fulfill all tasks you have till the deadline comes.

5. Make sure you have taken some medications with you, as there may be some health problem on your first day, and you won’t even know where a drugstore is. Due to your stress concerning the moving, you may have some unpleasant bonuses like a headache, stomachache, and many other illnesses.

6. Don’t forget to take your laptop and tablet PC with you together with all necessary stuff for them. Besides, you may bring some school notes related to your study’s field because they can be helpful too. 

It is a normal phenomenon for teenagers and adults to feel a little bit nervous during an event similar to moving to a college campus. This is a reaction of our organism to an unfamiliar environment. All you have to do not to look stupid and helpless is to stick to our recommendations.
