Save your course material. Whether you are aware of it or not saving course materials is a huge aspect of being successful in college. Most students throw their course materials away once they are done with their classes.

Also, you are not yet restricted or tied down from your professional career. It’s the perfect time to discover who you are and try out things you’ve always wanted to try. Maybe that’s a funky haircut or a piercing, however, we advise against making decisions that will be permanent and could get in the way of pursuing your profession down the line.
