Attendance is super important:

Bunking on lectures and attending other events is all fine and good but don’t forget about your ATTENDANCE. Yes, you might have heard from your friends “Arey, DU mein admission ho gaya? DU mein attendance ki kya dikkat!”. But let me tell you, that attendance is super important and, there is no escape in this regard irrespective of the society work you are involved in. In fact, in certain DU colleges, there is a minimum requirement of 66.6% attendance without which students are not allowed to Take semester examinations unlike school, where short attendance would mean a note to your parents. So be very careful about your attendance.

Find your BFFs:

We all have heard that friendships that are made in college lasts your lifetime. Indeed it is true! And mostly, people meet their BFFs or best friend forever in the initial few days or months of your college.
While some of you lucky folks would stay in touch with your school friends but they may or may not stay with you for the rest of your life, but the friends you will make in college will remain with you for the rest of your life. So, don’t hesitate, go and talk to new peple around you. You may at first feel awkward but once you do it, nothing seems much easier. Remember, everyone on your classroom is a fresher and has same insecurities as you. So this is the best time to break the ice and meet like minded people.

Also, keep in mind that as easy as it seems is to have a friendship that lasts a lifetime, equally easy is for you to fall for a bad company. So pick friends wisely, who encourages you in your studies and to be your true self. Once, you find such friends, they will stay with you always.

So, now you are in college and you even asked your parents for a raise in your pocket money and they did it, and now everything seems easy. But guess what? After few initial months of college, you will realize that you have to go hangout with your frieds, watch new movies, buy new clothes, get your nots and this money is just not enough and you find yourself broke.
Besides this, you will also realize that in this new phase of life saving money is also not that easy since you don’t want to compromise with your new life. So the key point here is that to spend more, you will have to earn first.
So you need to do some hard rather smart work. You can look for some part time internship or even look for some work in near by restaurant or even in your college. This will not only earn you money but will also help you by giving some first experience of job and will also help you in future by building your resume.
