10 Things That All College Sophomores Need To Remember
We Heart It

Sophomore year is known as one of the most fun years of college, you are no longer a freshman and but you still have so much time until the real world comes along. But, we still all get stressed and have things to worry about. Our classes have gotten harder than they were freshman year, and sometimes we just don't know what to do.

1. If you don't do well on a test, try to not worry!

This sounds like something you would tell a freshman, but even though our classes are getting harder and more important for our major, you need to remember that you have rest of the semester to make up for it. The key is stay relaxed and you will be fine.

2. You can survive the sophomore slump.

It's not a myth and it affects all of us at one point or another. You are not alone. Remember that.

3. It's okay to cry.

And you can cry about whatever you want. Doesn't have to be about being homesick, the amount of homework you have, or what you got on your exam. It's okay. Let it out.

4. Stay positive.

It's OK to be sad but it's also so important to try and stay positive about everything that is happening! Otherwise, you will waste a great year of school being sad.

5. We aren't upperclassmen.

We aren't the bottom of the heap anymore but we also aren't at the top of the world. Stay patient.

6. It's okay to eat what you want.

If this is your last year on campus before moving off campus into a house or you're moving into an apartment where you have to make your own food, enjoy the dining halls now. Because next year you'll probably be having a 2 a.m. craving for some chicken tenders and fries.

7. But also, go to the gym!

It's also important to stay healthy so you can keep up with what you eat! Healthy lifestyle equals healthy thoughts.

8. Enjoy the moments with your friends.

Again, if you are moving off campus a lot of your friends may not be living right next to you anymore, so even though you'll still see them next year, enjoy having them right there!

9. Go out!

It's okay to stress about school but it is also important to give yourself a break! Go out, have fun and make some poor decisions! It's all part of the college experience.

10. Don't worry, you still have plenty of time.

I know what you're thinking: "Oh my god, it's halfway over, we are so close to graduating." I know it is a scary thought but you still have two more great years to make even more great memories.
