How to Save Money While at College?

Written by A Khan

Continued from page 1

Food Instead of buying a pop, fromrepparttar local vending machine why not just buy a case of 24 to store at your locker or dorm room. You will be amazed at how much you will save when you buy in bulk. Another way of saving on food is to visit your friend’s fridge on a daily basis and when ever possible try to attend to any free food locations (parties, club meetings…etc) on campus.

Clothing Instead of buying those brand new “check marked” shoes, why not save your money for something that you will really need in college (laptop, books, contraceptives). Try to visitrepparttar 138071 local thrift store and check Ebay on a daily basis, you will be amazed at how many $1 t-shirts are out there.

Printing & Photocopying Many students save money on printing and photocopying byrepparttar 138072 use of a scanner. The student simply scans what he/she needs and emailsrepparttar 138073 scanned file back to him/her self. Not only will you save money, but will also have an electronic copy ofrepparttar 138074 file which you could later download to your laptop or pda. If you really must print then try not to userepparttar 138075 school printing services. Most ofrepparttar 138076 time these services will cost you an extra 5-10¢ per page, cents which could go towardsrepparttar 138077 purchase of a new ink cartridge.

Money Instead of using a credit card, why not only keep cash in your wallet/purse. Not only does this give an exact measure of how much cash you have at hand, and can spend, but will also avoid you from living above your means. Apart from that you could also try finding a part time job on campus, not only will you get some extra cash but will also gain some valuable experience that you can put on your resume.

How to Survive First Year Engineering

Written by A Khan

Continued from page 1

Learn to Skip Astonishing as it may sound, but I think it is vital for first year students to learn when to skip their classes. I mean you can’t skip all your classes but can and in most cases must in order to passrepparttar course. Againrepparttar 138028 problem arises fromrepparttar 138029 fact that as a first year engineer you have a finite amount of time to study and in most casesrepparttar 138030 weekend period is not enough. So forrepparttar 138031 greater good you will have to skiprepparttar 138032 liberal studies lecture orrepparttar 138033 optional tutorial. I would rather see a student skip a class to study for a test then for him/her to show up for class and worry aboutrepparttar 138034 upcoming test or quiz later that day.

Learn From Mistakes I find that it is usuallyrepparttar 138035 high achievers in high school who arerepparttar 138036 ones who freak out when they see their first C. Rather then understanding from their mistakes they get overwhelmed and in some cases obsessed withrepparttar 138037 mark. They are continuously trying to make uprepparttar 138038 difference by attending every class, compulsively trying to get perfect on every home work assignment and arerepparttar 138039 ones who study all day in their locked rooms. Surerepparttar 138040 student might get an A on his/hers first semester courses but inrepparttar 138041 long term (usually byrepparttar 138042 end of second year)repparttar 138043 student will be too burnout and in most cases must drop out from their engineering program.

Take Time to Relax and Exercise I think it is vital for engineers to put aside some time to relax and exercise. Personally, I find nothing more satisfying then pounding a punching bag to vent out allrepparttar 138044 built up frustration after a hard day at school. Apart from exercising, diet also plays a major role. If you can not eat your greens and fruits, on a daily basis, then you should consider taking a multivitamin everyday. Drink more water when ever possible and try to keep your daily caffeine intake to a maximum of two cups, yes I realize it is hard especially when you are doing an all nighter.

Hopefully after readingrepparttar 138045 above hints you will manage much better in being a first year engineering student. Try to embrace your days in school and always try to get a good night sleep.
