Wisdom for New College Students

Fuller Youth Institute posted a fantastic list of tips and ideas for graduating female seniors as they soon become college freshman. A few from the list:

1. Find a church and a college Christian group within the first week on campus, and commit to being a part of it.
5. Avoid credit cards like the plague (even if they ARE giving away free T-Shirts and frisbees!) If you want to build your credit history, ask your parents to add them to one of their credit cards.

8. Serve in your church somewhere. It'll help build relationships and feel like home away from home.
11. Conversations past 11:00 PM with guys tend to be more detrimental than beneficial.

13. Hang out 1 on 1 with women who have experienced life a little longer than you.
20. It is really possible to never pull an all-nighter if you plan your time well.

Anything you'd add?

  1. I wish I could've read this 5 years ago! I'll definitely be saving this for when my youth group girls are ready to graduate. Thanks for sharing!
