It’s all happening guys! Uni is just around the corner for all of the Higher Ed students which just so happens to include a lot of my friends. Lucky for me, I started 2 weeks ago so I don’t have to stress about tomorrow. But, for those of you who haven’t started yet and have a lot of anxiety about it, here’s how to survive it.
1. Say hi to people.
Don’t be that awkward person in the corner! Go and talk to someone or make an effort to get to know the people in your course. There’s no point being alone the whole time when you could be making friends.
2. Be yourself.
Don’t start putting on a show for your peers. There’s a reason they’re in that course so try connecting with them over that instead of trying to impress them by being someone else.
3. Use the map.
If they give you a campus map, use that thing. Don’t try to be proud and think that you don’t need it because let me tell you, you will need it. Speaking from experience, keep it with you for a while, just in case.
4. Bring a pen and a book.
You never know what you might need to write down. For me, in my writing course, it’s essential to have something to write on in case inspiration strikes but it can be just as handy for those studying something else as well.
5. Have fun!
Uni is honestly so much fun. Sure, the classes or lectures might be boring but you’re there for a reason so just enjoy it. You never know where your course will take you so make the most of it.
Thanks for reading today guys! If you’re starting uni tomorrow then I wish you the very best of luck!
