It is easier to keep your momentum when you’re surrounded by other students working through the same struggles, following the same class/study routine, and have the same goals for graduation. Besides camaraderie, supportive groups provide a network that will help you find answers and solve problems. Getting involved has been shown to increase the probability of graduation.
Jobs on Campus
If you have to work, try to find a job on campus. The more aspects of your life that are off-campus can make it more difficult to graduate on time. Full-time enrollment increases the probability of graduating on time. The trick is to balance important life aspects, like family or work, with your life as a student.
For some people, it is easier to study with a group of peers. There are organized study groups, groups developed in class or in the dorms, and those that meet in the library.
Future Professional Colleagues
The friends you make in college often share similar interests and career paths and may be your future professional colleagues. These relationships may increase the likelihood that you will be able to follow your chosen career path even more successfully after graduation.
