Tips for the College Student

College is the best and worst years of your life. You meet new people, take really difficult classes, move away from home (for some), and you have to learn new things about yourself that you would’ve never known. College is extremely intimidating and can be super stressful. Let me rephrase that, college is super stressful. I am in my second semester of junior year in college so I know how it feels, which is why I am writing this post. In this post, I’ll be giving my Tips for the College Student.

  • Don’t be so afraid. College involves so much, but try not to be so afraid of what comes with it.
  • Change is good. If you feel yourself changing, accept it. Don’t fight it.
  • It’s okay to not be okay.
  • If you fall out of love with your major, find out the root cause. It’s most likely just stress. Don’t change your major right away because you’re upset. You might regret it later.
  • It’s okay if you don’t have a million friends. I commute to school so I know it is harder to make friends that way. When you dorm it’s easier because you’re with people constantly, but when you commute you most likely go to class and go home. Just try to find people in class and become friends with them. It’s not the end of the world, everyone is in the same boat as you, just say hi to someone.
  • Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is probably the hardest because everyone gains the freshman 15 lol. Just try to eat healthier and get a little exercise whenever you can. If you’re on a meal plan just look for the healthier options, there’s no reason to eat bad everyday. It’ll make you feel bad & unhappy.
  • Try to stay organized! I have many blog posts on this – What To Do During The First Week of SchoolHow To Cure Back To School JittersBack To School Clean OutHigh School/College Tips, & How I Plan (Color Coding).
  • Just be yourself.

College is definitely scary, but if you remain yourself and accept the change you’ll be okay. Be confident and you will succeed. I hope these tips and extra posts help you! Thanks for reading (:


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!
