Not every semester will be the same. Tell yourself that this semester will be better than the last one. There will be new people you will meet, supplies you need to buy, and most importantly, new opportunities. You definitely need to get used to the new semester, and it’s completely okay to take your time. Here are some things you need to do to get back in action:
New semester means new classmates, and what’s college without friends? The more people you get to know, the better. Friends will help you with your last-minute study, keep you company when you’re low and do so much more.
- Update your resume
Updating your resume is very important. You’ll be doing new projects every semester and it’s good to add them on there. Achievements and any other participations can also be added because, in the end, it’s all about your resume.
- Most importantly, study!
Try improving your GPA, but don’t stress in the process of doing so. You will need a good GPA to sit in certain placements, but it’s your skills that matter when you’re trying to land your job.
- Buy textbooks
Some of us can’t concentrate while studying from PDFs. That’s exactly why we need hard copies. Make sure you buy your textbooks well in advance to avoid last minute hurry or out of stock.
- No comparison
Your friend might have more GPA than you, but that doesn’t mean you’re not doing good. Everyone is unique in their own way. You have skills that your friend doesn’t. You’ve achieved more than so many other students. There should be absolutely no comparison between you and any other person.
- Get to know your professors
You get new professors every semester, so it’s always good to interact with them. It might seem like it doesn’t make a difference but believe me, it goes a long way. They’re more experienced than you are and will definitely guide you in getting an internship or even a job.
- Take up a new interest
Why not take a dive in LPU’s Olympic sized pool? Or maybe, you can even signup for one out of hundreds of student clubs in our college. Trying something new won’t hurt you, will it?
- Visit the study abroad office
Stay informed of the options that are available for your student exchange or even a master’s abroad. Who knows what the future might hold!
As long as you love what you’re studying, every semester will pass by as swiftly as a breeze, giving you so many experiences and teaching you so many things. You’ll actually feel sad at some point because of how fast college ends. So, make the most of it!
