I have many freshman in my teacher education course. At William Jessup University, freshman take a seminar to help them learn how to have a successful first year. I found this great infographic created by VisualApogee . I smiled as I read through it because I could relate the tips given – remembering way back to my own freshman experience. I hope you enjoy the graphic as much as I do! The only thing I would add is sleep. Go to bed at a reasonable hour. There are many articles relating to the importance of sleep and studying. Two of my favorite are found HERE and HERE.
