There are many different types of people that you will undoubtedly encounter once in college.
Some are very studious and solely focused on school, some only chose to attend a specific university because of the party scene, and some have found the balance between parties and education.
Starting college can be very overwhelming, especially if you are in a completely new environment surrounded by hundreds of different people who all seem to be cool, mature, and have their lives together. It can be hard to find a balance between wanting to go out every night in order to make friends and trying to attend every single 8 am class that you have the first semester.
And while it may seem extremely difficult to have both a social life and maintain your GPA, it is totally possible. Finding your own personal balance between work and play is totally up to you. Go out when you want, but make sure that your grades aren’t suffering because you accidentally slept through a very important lecture day.
Make sure that your schedule allows you to have fun while still maintaining most of your focus on your essential school duties- after all, that is the main reason you went to college in the first place. It is also important for you to find time to sit back, organize your schedule, plans, thoughts, and just relax.
Making sure that you have a balanced life while in college will ultimately give you the best experience that you could have.
