How to Prepare for College During High School

Posted by Arzoo

High School to college is a huge stepping-stone and it is very important to be well prepared for it. High school students can prepare by researching different schools both in state and out of state to branch out. They should look at school locations, programs, degrees, and housing. Once you have a list of schools you should always check out the campus. Usually schools hold preview days, information sessions or personal campus tours for prospective students. Organization is the key for college applications; it’s crucial to have all the important dates written down and completing all the required documents. Other than preparation, students should be engaged in the high school and build relationships with teachers. They give great advice and become good recommendation letters.

Productivity with Some Fun Along the Way

Posted by Kyle Barras

Your college years will by far be some of the most memorable years of your life. But how can you be expected to graduate in four years, while building a resume, interning, working, going to school and still having fun along the way? You must be creative with your time. Utilize every moment that you are doing something fun as a time to be productive. For example, you may hang out with your friends and study or review your lecture notes. When you have a group project in class, don’t just do the project; make meaningful connections with your peers as you do it. Get to know them, what their major is, what their aspirations are, and more. Networking doesn’t necessarily need to occur in a professional office setting.

The Balancing Act

Posted by Lourd Ebuen

People often ask how I manage to balance three jobs and keep up with my studies. As a student assistant graphic designer, freelancer, and Disneyland parade performer, I find myself asking the same question. But I’ve realized that my jobs go hand-in-hand with my studies in graphic design at school, and they work well with my class schedule.

 

Keeping up with deadlines and distributing time between work, school, homework, and of course social life helps keep things in perspective. I am able to see how much time I actually have to complete my homework for school. Many times, I have to start on a project very early to get it done by the deadline or sometimes request time off of work to allow more time. One of the effective ways to do this is to carry an agenda to write things down. I stay organized with my day-to-day schedule and I am able to balance my time between work and school.

 

Working and going to school is definitely possible, so don’t be afraid to venture into the real world while in college!
