New School Year

     It’s already the start of a new school year which means new faces and familiar faces on campus. The start of a new semester is always super exciting and stressful at the same time.

     Incoming freshmen will soon learn that they either bit off more than they can chew, or will want to join more organizations. Returning students might have a heavier work load and will have to distance themselves from certain activities. Either way, the school year will be a fresh reminder that everyone needs to work hard and be prepared for whatever comes their way.
      The best trick is to stay organized. Now, I know this is a very basic concept that I’m sure everyone is familiar with, but staying organized is really one of the main reasons for success as a college student. We juggle different classes, jobs, extracurriculars, etc., and without a planner or a simple calendar all of those things would be forgotten. Time is really of the essence when you have to 10 minutes to go from class to work, and then another 10 minutes from work to a meeting of some sort. Slacking off should not be allowed this semester.
