High School Tips & Best Practices

Talk and be nice to everyone

Many high school students only socialize with those in their close group of friends. More successful college students are those who socialized with all types of people in high school. This high school tip may seem obvious, but you never know who you may end up going to college with or need a roommate. Being social with all types of students also gives you experience making new friends and socializing with people of different backgrounds and beliefs. Most colleges are a melting pot of different cultures, religions, races etc.

Don't go against your core beliefs or values to be popular

Stay true to yourself. Don't change your personality or who you are to fit in. When you get to college high school will not matter. You will be able to find other college students with the same likes as you, just be sure they are your likes. High school will eventually be over, you will go to college and no one will remember what you were like in high school.
