While the common axiom is that high school will be the best years of your life, attending college and training to take up the career of your dreams can be just as formative and satisfying.
To help make your time here at Northwest as enjoyable as possible, here are three tips to help you make the most of your college experience.
As a general rule of thumb, you get as much out of an education as you put into it. NCC, like many higher education institutions, allows you to be proactive with your learning giving you the opportunity to learn from experts in diverse fields and explore your passions to tailor your qualifications to your idea future career.
With deadlines creeping up on you, work piling up, and exams on the horizon, it can be easy to burn the candle at both ends, sacrificing your personal health for a few more hours hitting the books.
Unfortunately, this rarely translates in enhanced academic performance, as being sleep deprived and subsisting on a diet of junk food does nothing to help you lean. The bottom line is that you can’t do something well if you’re half-asleep and it’s been weeks since you eat something that didn’t get heated up in a microwave. Take care of yourself.
If you’re struggling, let your tutors know and let them provide you with the help you need to get back on track. Mental health issues in particular are becoming increasingly prominent among students, and nobody should feel afraid to speak up about them.
There is no shame in admitting that you are having a tough time and asking for help. At the end of the day, you are here to achieve your qualifications, not to impress anybody, and sometimes, asking for help is the best way of getting over the finish line.
