Dedicate a space for every class in your book bag.

In the department store aisles, there are boxes and boxes of binders, folders and organizational tools. For every class, dedicate a binder, folder or notebook. There should be a place for class notes, handouts and homework assignments. Some of the larger binders can accommodate all classes. It is really a matter of personal choice; just keep papers separated by class.

Buy an agenda book and use it

Most students have an agenda book, but they don’t write anything in it. On Monday, write down all of the week’s assignments. Most teachers have them posted in the classroom.

Don’t wait until the last minute.

Study a little every night instead of cramming late the night before the test. A good night’s sleep helps. Bleary eyes and a tired body do not.

Select a consistent place to study.

Some people need total quiet while others can study well with music in the background (try classical music). The key is to find a comfortable place and study there regularly, such as the kitchen table, a desk, a favorite chair, bed, etc. Make sure it has adequate lighting and keep all your study supplies in reach.

Share tips on how to get textbooks for cheap, where to buy the cheapest laptops, and the best thrift stores for students fashion.

Living off-campus

For many students, choosing to live off-campus rather than on it is a big step. It's a new way of living that displaces the need to follow the rules of dorm life. If you lived off-campus, what would your ideal living arrangement be? What are your favorite places in your city to live and why? Or do you think it's better for students to live on or off-campus?
