Four years sounds like a long time to commit to getting good grades in college. I can assure you that it goes by fast. Stay committed to making the best grades and surrounding yourself with friends that want to do well in college and study. You can motivate each other and study together.
Be friendly to the students in class that sit by you and always attend. You can both benefit by sharing notes if one of you miss class. Study groups before a midterm or final are wonderful. Generally most college libraries have study rooms. You can reserve on in time for your group to get together and study.
When I saw the YouTube Video called, “The Secret To Straight A’s” by YesReneau, I had to share it with you. It’s filled with strategies that I too used in college.
