Not Every Student Parties When He Goes To College
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

College is often associated with wild partying. Many people assume that when a young person leaves home and is no longer under the watchful eyes of his parents, he will party. He will drink, get drunk, and spend the next day hung over, rather than being the responsible student that his parents believe him to be. Some, unfortunately, do follow this path. These individuals perhaps did not realize what they were getting into when they registered for school. Some may also need more time to grow up.

Other individuals, however, do not party. They begin college knowing exactly what they want to do when they graduate. They see their advisor, get in the appropriate classes, study hard, and earn good grades. They join organizations, have great experiences, and make connections that enrich their college experience and help them later in life.

If you would like to go to college and the opportunity to go to school comes your way, do not throw it away. Go to school.

When you get there, learn to manage your time. Pay attention to your body to learn whether you are a day person or a night person. That way, you can study and write your papers when you are most alert. If you are wide awake in the daytime but feel sluggish at night, work in the daytime. That way, you will have your evening to relax. On the other hand, if you are tired in the daytime and perk up later in the day, you might do your best work at night. In either case, be sure that you do your work in a place where you will not disturb your roommate. He is also a student, and he needs his rest and study time.

Then, when you have finished your school work, have some fun. Playtime will allow you to clear your head and relieve stress. There are a number of ways to enjoy yourself on a college campus that do not involve partying, and those students who are not into the party scene will appreciate them.

Many schools bring in guest speakers, for example. These individuals speak to the student body on a variety of topics. Listening to a speech may help to inspire your creativity. It will also be educational while not sounding like a classroom lecture. Speeches are not the only activity for you to enjoy, however.

You can also attend athletic events, such as fooball, basketball, or baseball games. You can cheer for your favorite players and watch your team win.

When you participate in school activities, you will get more out of your college experience. Then, after you graduate, you can look back on the experience and feel happiness and satisfaction, rather than regret.
