For most, a diploma is a ticket to adulthood. At the university, students learn not only to study but they also go through a real school of life. Having received the coveted ticket, they have a colossal experience of psychological victories and defeats behind them. It is very important not to spoil these years with strained relations with classmates and teachers. To prevent possible troubles in the student community, you need to behave correctly and with dignity from the very beginning.
Relationships With Teachers
It is essential to have good relationships with teachers to make your studies joyful.
Correcting a bad reputation is almost impossible. Having spoiled the teacher’s attitude to yourself once, you are unlikely to be able to return the previous level of trust. Teachers like to discuss the achievements and misconduct of students, and a quarrel with one of the teachers threatens your overall reputation. And it can have a bad effect on exams, as well as on your psychological mood. In this case, it will be smart to pay for an essay and spend more time studying for exams where you have quarrels with teachers. But in total, an excellent base for a good student reputation is a responsibility, punctuality, attendance of classes and active participation in the life of the university.
Be friendly and smart when communicating with teachers. Rudeness is inappropriate here. Of course, sometimes the teacher is wrong, but the struggle for justice can only aggravate your conflict. Remember that the university is a school of life, and you need to learn to control yourself.
Always be confident in yourself. On exams, during answers in classes and when communicating with the teacher, you need to be calm and confident. You are already an adult, and there should be no place for embarrassment in your life. Learn not to be afraid of verbal answers. Use all the opportunities to free yourself before adulthood. Try to have performances on stage, in front of an audience, at scientific conferences, etc. Teachers will appreciate and remember this. With each course, all these things will be easier, and you will become more confident in yourself.
In addition, it is important to have good relationships with classmates to make your university experience better.
Do not put yourself above others in the class and be friendly to others, even if it is a forced communication. You need to be friends with everyone until you figure out who will be your friend, girlfriend, who should be avoided, etc. Usually, friends find each other in the process of communication, joint study, leisure, etc.
The spirit of competition is inherent in most student groups. It is especially noticeable among students who want to get a scholarship. But you need to remain sober and do not push the race for high grades to absurdity. Be diligent and responsible, but do not go to extremes.
Ignore criticism, gossip, unpleasant jokes, etc. If possible, laugh with everyone. Do not show others your weaknesses and topics that affect you. Even friends can randomly say something harmful, so don’t take everything personally.
It is very important to dilute workdays with joint walks, student parties, going to the movies and other recreational activities. This will help you to better know classmates, find real friends and just have a good time.
You should also know why you entered the university and what purpose you set for yourself. This may be financial independence, future career growth, self-development, etc.
