Attending college in a bustling, busy city is an exciting opportunity to learn and grow while immersing yourself in a new culture, but there will be unique challenges that may take some time to get used to. However, college in a big city is a great chance to get to know your likes and dislikes before you decide where your life will take you. These tips will help you make the most of out of spending your college years in a large city. University buildings are usually spread throughout the whole city, so transportation will take quite some of your free time and money. If you are unlucky, even lectures of the same department and on the same day are held in different buildings, requiring you to travel back-and-forth through the city during the day.
“Some students enjoy the opportunity to privately ask questions and then receive personal explanations. Some students seek additional exercises and study tips. Other students desire to discuss and verify their understanding of an assignment,” says Anita Culler, the lead academic coach at North Carolina State University (NC State).
