When you go to college it’s a total lifestyle change. Your perspective universe expands and that’s why colleges are parts of institutions called the universities. You college is a double-edged sword though: you are free as a bird, but you are also responsible for your own destiny. You may have to move to another city. You may have to live in a hostel or a rented apartment all by yourself. You can decide whether you want to attend classes or bunk them (and nobody is going to call your parents or take you to task during the PTA meetings). Success means different things to different people, but in a post titled The Ultimate Guide to Being Successful in College the author walks you through the essentialities of being successful in your college. Good tips!
