How To Make A Name For Yourself As A Student
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Perhaps you will soon be a college freshman. You came from an average-sized high school, where you were well known and had many friends. Soon you will be in college, where there are thousands of students. How can you get established, stand out, and avoid being just another student?

One way is to get good grades. By getting good grades in your classes, you may get on your school’s Dean’s List. You may even be nominated for inclusion in Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. School is about more than classes and grades, however. In order to succeed in your classes, it is important to learn to manage your time between classes and fun activities. What activities might you choose?

If you wish to stand out, you might consider trying out for the band, football team, dance team, or cheerleading squad. These activities will allow you to be physically active and will also help students and staff at your school to get to know you. These activities are ideal for extroverts. If you consider yourself to be an introvert, you might instead prefer other types of activities.

For example, you might think about writing for your school newspaper. This activity will allow you to have a byline, and it will help you to stay informed on events in your school and community. By writing for your school paper, you will meet others, improve your writing, and learn to meet deadlines.

Finally, you might consider becoming a tutor for your college’s Student Support Services organization. By becoming a tutor, you will earn some money. You will also get to experience the satisfaction of helping other students to succeed. Your help may make the difference between whether a student leaves school or continues on to finish his degree.

As you can see, there are a number of good ways to get involved that will make you feel good about yourself and will help people to get to know you.

Do not try to make a name for yourself by making a lengthy cheat sheet for a test. Most schools have policies against cheating. If you are caught engaging in the practice, you will likely be expelled. If you are expelled, you will have difficulty getting back in school. You will also have trouble getting work after you graduate, because your prospective employer will want to know why you were kicked out of school. Instead of doing something that will get you in trouble, study for your tests. Study often, and learn the material well. That way, there will be no need for a cheat sheet, and you can succeed on your own.
