Working well with classmates can help you in college because if you need help with a topic then you can ask someone about the assignment and they can help you without any trouble. A habit you must posses is studying. Studying will always help you no matter what you are learning. By developing a habit you will continue to do the habit and not notice you are doing it because it is a habit. Studying allows you to remember things and helps you on tests and quizzes. Taking time out of the day to study will also help you finish assignments faster when the time comes, which helps you take more personal responsibility. Accepting personal responsibility for your actions both academically and personally is an important key to being successful. Being successful is what everyone dreams about and when you accept personal responsibility, it is like showing yourself that you can reach your goals if you stop blaming others about your mistakes. And when you do not accept personal responsibility people will not believe that you are mature and will not take you seriously. In conclusion, college mindsets, habits, working well with others and accepting personal responsibility are very important in college and everyday life.
