November 2017

For many college students, achieving academic success in college is quite different than academic success in high school.

Even the best high school students, often arrives to the college unprepared for the rigors of their college curriculum. They face a much faster pace, multiple deadlines, more assignments and much more reading in the college than in high school. In fact, many studies show that most high school graduates are simply not prepared for college and once in college, many are not prepared to succeed.

To help students with this growing problems, below mentioned are the few tips for Do's and Don'ts for the freshmen in the college.
