6 Ways to Be an Effective Student in College

Your first step to effective studying is setting goals. Before making real progress, you must envision where you want to be and how you will get there. If your goal is “get through the semester,” that’s not enough.

You need to know what specific things you will learn and how they will help you achieve your larger goals. After identifying those things, it is much easier to focus on them and get them done in a timely fashion.

Make a Schedule and To-Do Lists

It can be tempting to go with the flow when in college. However, getting overwhelmed by everything you need to do is easy without a study schedule and to-do list.

Make sure that your schedule includes all of your classes, work shifts, extracurricular activities, social plans, and time for yourself. Afterward, create a daily task list for each day of the week that covers everything else that needs to be done before class on Monday morning. The list includes studying and completing assignments. It will help you stay on top of all of your responsibilities so that you can make sure they are done on time.

Participate in Class

In a college classroom, participation is key. You are there to learn; if you don’t participate, how will you learn?

You might think sitting quietly through class and taking notes is enough, but it’s not. You need to take part in the conversation. Your professor wants you to be engaged with the material. Not only because it will help you remember it better but also because it will get the other students engaged.

You can participate in class by asking questions about things that confuse you. We recommend offering examples from your own life or experiences (if applicable) and asking for clarification on different misunderstood issues. Lastly, remember to participate in group activities or discussions where applicable.

Complete Homework Assignments Early

As a college student, you know that completing your assignments on time is the most important thing you can do to succeed. However, it’s also something that can be hard to remember when you are busy with other things like studying for tests or hanging out with friends. Hence, how do you ensure your homework gets done on time?

After getting it, the best way is to complete it as soon as possible. This way, it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle of all the other things you have going on in your life and will be done before anything else comes up that might distract you from getting it done.

If other assignments are coming up after this one, ensure they are completed as soon as possible. Therefore, they don’t interfere with completing the first assignment on time. Alternatively, we recommend trying out paper writers from reliable essay writing services for homework help.

Be on Time

It is important to get up early and allow plenty of time to get ready, eat breakfast, and leave on time if you live at home and drive to campus. Set your alarm for at least 30 minutes before you need to be out the door.

On days when you have class or appointments later in the day, plan accordingly by getting to class on time and leaving for your next appointment after that class ends. It will prevent you from wasting precious minutes trying to find parking spots or running late because you were waiting for a friend who arrived late.

Build New Skills Each Semester

To be an effective student in college, you should build new skills each semester. It is because it’s easy to become stagnant or complacent with your studies by failing to challenge yourself and grow.

If you’re not learning something new in each class, You are missing out on many opportunities for growth and development as a student by not learning something new in each class. Thus, making it difficult to succeed in college.

Whether starting your first semester or senior year, there is always room for improvement in how you approach college. So try these six ways to be an effective student in college and have the best time possible while also putting forth a great deal of effort into all of your classes.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’



Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #LifebuoyCEOgh #GHD2022 hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.
