Varsity can be one of the best times of your life, especially if you do well in your academics as well as your personal life. If you’re heading to varsity this year, here are a few ingredients to varsity success that you should know about.

Organisation

The first ingredient to varsity success is getting and staying organised. This way, you’ll be able to stay on top of your academics and other obligations, without sacrificing your free time. You can stay organised however works best for you. We recommend having a timetable and diary that you can update daily. You can learn more about how to keep a diary in this article. There are also apps that can help you stay on schedule- you can check them out here.

Openness

If you go into varsity with a positive and open attitude, anything is possible. Be open to trying new activities, joining societies on campus and meeting new people. This will help you learn valuable skills, create important relationships and enjoy your student life. We understand that that putting yourself out there can be a bit scary at first, especially if you’re not really an outgoing person. But trust us- once you take the leap, putting yourself out there will become much easier. Here are some confidence tips we love from our favourite superheros- check them out for some inspo!

Discipline

Now that you’re at varsity, you’ll be taking on a lot more responsibility than you had in school. Self-discipline is an important skill to learn if you’d like to succeed at varsity. Discipline doesn’t have to be boring or difficult, though. When you become more disciplined in your life, you’ll be able to enjoy your varsity times and make the most of the opportunities that come your way. Varsity can be overwhelming at times- especially if you’re managing student debt or working while studying. Following a daily routine at varsity is also important for stress management and your general wellbeing. Being disciplined with your routine will help you make time for self-care at varsity.

Ambition

Varsity is the time you have to prepare yourself for your career, so building those stepping stones now will set you up for success. Let your goals motivate you, and don’t lose sight of them throughout the year. If you’re not feeling very ambitious, then you might not have a clear vision just yet.
