Advice for students entering Kollege for the first time

Congratulations! You earned that 4.0 GPA in high school and got accepted into a prestigious university. What now?

Be wary young adventurers, college is not a place for fun and games!

Keep in mind that you should still try your best to keep up a 3.5+++ GPA during your undergraduate years. It will be a lot more difficult to keep up your grades due to the large class size and competition that you will be faced with.


1. There will be difficult people/students in your way of success. Here’s how you deal with them.

  • Get a gopro
  • Carry it and livestream it everywhere you go
  • Write a story about them
  • Report to a higher up/counselor

2. There will also be people doing drugs and dranking while underage. Here’s what you should do.

  • Avoid them, or befriend them and join them
  • Your grades are more important so don’t stay around this situation for too long

3. You probably forgot about Graduate school/professional schools because you were busy having too much fun. 

  • Get a notebook and write down goals for yourself.
  • Set weekly/monthly/yearly goals and long term goals
  • Review them each week and follow them!
  • It only takes ten minutes.

4. You forgot to gather professional reference or work experience

  • If your school has courses that prepare for the workforce be sure to take advantage of it
  • Be sure to look into internships and volunteer experience while your still in school
  • Also make sure to ask for reference and letters of recommendation (glowing) to build confidence.

5. What will you do after you graduate?

  • Plan this out during your junior year so you don’t end up unemployed or being a tramp/hobo after you graduate.

Sometimes your school may have Dual 4+1 or 4+2 programs that offer you a masters or professional health degree when you graduate for an extra year or two. If you can research this area and get accepted into one of those programs then you can save a lot of money and time!
