Our lifestyles are always changing. If we don’t know how to manage and adjust for those changes, life can feel pretty scary and overwhelming. One of the biggest changes many of us will make during our lives is going to college.
[thrive_text_block color=”blue” headline=””] College is a completely different place than the rest of the world. It is the first time you’re out on your own, the first time you’re completely responsible for yourself, and on top of it all, you’ve got very serious homework assignments to complete and tests to study for. The thought of being out on your own can be very overwhelming. [/thrive_text_block]
We are here to help.
Throughout our pages, we provide tips and tricks to assist new college students find their way in their new environment. Here are just a few of the topics we can cover.
Budgeting and Financing
College is incredibly expensive and if you’re given any opportunity to work, it’s usually only a part-time position. We provide surface-level budgeting and financing tips that can help you stay on track. We look for great discount choices to replace everything from laundry detergent to toothpaste to help you stay on track.
We also help you find special discounts just for college students. We know that college is stressful and we want to eliminate some of that stress by giving you great, cheaper options.
Organization and Studying
Staying organized and on top of your studying is one of the most important parts of being in college. We provide strategies for staying on top of your work and the best way to schedule your classes for maximum success. We can help you manage your time, organize your notes, and ace all your classes.
Friendships & Relationships
Many people are forced into an entirely new environment when they enter college. They’re away from their parents, away from their high school boyfriend or girlfriends, and away from their friends. We hope to help you maintain those long distance relationships while creating some new relationships as well.
Making new friends can be scary, as is leaving the friends you’ve known your entire life behind. We provide the resources to gain the courage to introduce yourself to new people as well as tips and tricks for staying in touch no matter how far away from home you are.
Health and Fitness
Our website also addresses the many components of health and fitness that occur in college. The Freshman 15 is a real thing, but it doesn’t have to be for you. Our health and fitness articles can provide you with healthy recipes you can make in a dorm room as well as tips on staying fit and incorporating exercise into your already busy schedule. We hope to help you pick out the healthiest options in the dining hall and get the most out of your school gym.
Anytime we change our lifestyle, we’re going to be met with a challenge. Things are going to be different, and college is a time when so many things in your life change. We hope to help any individual going through this change make the necessary adjustments they need in their life to succeed and thrive in their new setting.
It might seem scary and impossible, but with the right lifestyle resources, a college town can quickly feel like home.
