    Best College Survival Tip: Go to every job fair that your school has to offer, whether you are a freshman or a senior. By the time I returned looking for a job as a senior, the company representatives (who don’t normally change) already knew my name and face.

    my best tip is just to relax and have fun. balancing homework and parties is tough, but just think, millions of college students have made it. if they can do it, you can do it!

    Best College Survival Tip: Don’t be afraid to be a slacker. Okay, don’t not do a final project or presentation that is important, but if you have a reading assignment, and you choose to screw around with your friends by watching a movie and eating junk, don’t sweat it! Things will get done, and all-nighters are not required either. In 4 years of college I have not had one all-nighter (i’ve had some late ones!) and my GPA is a 3.7. Take time to step away from all your work and celebrate, you deserve it!

    My tip to surviving college: learn to cook! Pizza bills add up and get expensive..if your dorm or a friends house has a kitchen..learn to use it!
