Getting a good education is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so make every second count! Attending college, whether it takes place online, in a lab facility, or in a classroom, can be exciting and extremely rewarding. Don’t let the experience just pass you by, but rather, make the most of all that it has to offer.

Perfect your study habits. The routine you have outside the classroom is important to your success. Perfect good habits early on and they could benefit you for the rest of your life. Find a place that works best for you to review the material, complete assignments, and study for exams. It could be in a library, at a coffee shop, or at home, wherever the most productive environment is for you. Make a schedule for yourself and set aside the times that you’re focused and at your best.

Join the community. Attend and participate in campus events. Attend seminars, guest lectures, and extracurricular activities. Get involved with a club or organization. Contribute to the school’s online social media community. As an active member of your educational community, you’ll meet new people and grow your network.

Get social. The friendships formed at school often become lifelong relationships. Whether it’s a mentor, faculty member, instructor, or classmate, there are countless opportunities to develop meaningful relationships. An instructor could also serve as a reference when you’re job searching. The more people you meet, the stronger your professional network becomes.

Soak up the services. Take advantage of programs and services available to you as a student. School offers more than just the classes you attend. Take advantage of on-campus and online resources such as computer labs, libraries, and one-on-one and group tutoring. Find volunteer or externship opportunities in your field. This involvement will make a positive addition to your résumé. Enlist the help of the career services department to plan for your future. Attend résumé workshops and job fairs.

Getting an education is more than learning the skills you need to succeed in your desired field. An education is also about the experience. It offers a wide range of services and a community of people to help you achieve your goals.
