You know, the world is actually a very big place to live in. And the more you learn about it, the bigger it tends to grow. That is why at the very moment when you are choosing a school to go get a degree (or maybe even the second degree), you may suddenly find yourself quite confused by the choices you are given. But you would better cheer up here, as more challenges are yet to come.
When you are a college student, a non-plagiarized essay becomes your highest ideal, and your instinct to search for new opportunities gets sharper. So, would you like to turn your ideals into achievable objectives and your instinct into a well-developed and reliable sixth sense? Would you like to navigate your own way through the jungles and desserts of higher education? Alright, your wish would take about 40% of your success. And we are going to see how you can obtain the rest!
In Brief: Preface
Speaking frankly, these numbers, 40% and 60%, are driven not from some intelligent psychological research, but from pure life experience. Personally I believe that it would be unfair to award 50% to such an abstract thing as a human wish, which depends largely on its owner’s mood, health and state of mind. However, it would be also wrong to underestimate our dreams and aims, because they are what actually motivates us to look for the road to take.
So, imagine that you are looking through a kind of “hitchhikers’ guide” to the galaxy of higher education. Let us tell you more about things and people (and creatures) you will have to face and deal with there. Find some good advice and practical recommendations, which may appear not that universal, but which will definitely amuse you and lift your spirits. Are you ready? Here we go!

Time-Manage Your Duties and Ambitions
College or university life harbors much more than term papers, exams or your thesis. However diligently your professors work, however responsibly you complete your home assignments and pore over numerous books, you cannot help needing these two things: practice and … rest.
Indeed, you simply cannot evaluate your knowledge until you use it to do a real task or find a real solution. What I mean here is that as a student you can and should get involved into various projects or, probably, start-ups, to say nothing of finding a well-paid job.
At the same time, you must know for sure what exactly can help you relax and let your brain cool after a busy day/week/month (underline what applicable). So, we cannot leave health and entertainment out. We are going to talk about rational time-management strategies and throw out to you some interesting ideas on spending leisure time with maximum benefit.
Learn and Live
I still remember what one of my college professors said to me when I was just a green first-year student. I must admit that to some extent his words helped me survive and learn all those things I dare claim to know well nowadays. ‘No one is going to teach you here. Yet my task is to show you what you need to and can learn yourself’. The thing is that the knowledge is much more global than you can imagine when you are listening to the lecture or writing an essay. So, we are going to prove you that you should not limit yourself with the book or website offered by your course program. Explore everything you feel you are interested in. Why not?
P.S. Those Guys on the Other Side of Your Screen
Well, I advised my colleagues, who are my best friends and inspirers at the same time, to tell a few words about team. I do not remember whether they agreed or not, but somehow they entrusted this page to me, so I decided to introduce us all to you. Our team is actually a simmering medley of a few educators, several professional web developers and content managers, a couple of enthusiastic bloggers and a marketing manager. Engaged into many other projects and jobs, we have decided to come up with our own blog and devote it to everybody who is lucky to be a student.
P.P.S. Enjoy your time with us and follow our updates! Take care!
