The nine student commandments to start the semester

A few good intentions for the start of the semester have never hurt anyone. Being the model student you are, you’re expected to follow every single one.

1. Thou shalt know where you’re going

Not all courses will take place in the same building. At least that’s the case in Zurich. If you don’t want to be running around like a headless chicken, it’s worth checking out the locations of all relevant lecture halls beforehand. The very clever ones will find out where lectures take place BEFORE enrolling for a module because breaks simply aren’t long enough to get from one end of town to the other.

2. Thou shalt be on time for lectures

…or even a bit early. Lecture halls can be packed, especially for the main modules, and sitting on the staircase just isn’t that comfortable. Arrive a bit too early. I speak from experience.

6. Thou shalt carry a decent bag

Depending on your course of study, you might have to carry quite a few books and documents around with you. Cloth bags might look cool, but will hardly ever suffice. If you’re into sports, too, I’d recommend you get a robust dufflebag. If you make sure you go for a good-quality one, you’ll be using it throughout your time at uni.

9. Thou shalt start preparing for exams on time

We usually start the semester planning to write a summary after ever lecture. What a good intention – but it usually doesn’t last longer than two weeks. Uni sport and drinks in bQm bar are just too tempting. Preparing for your exam at the dining table is only going to work until your flat mates get home and want to have dinner. It’s worth having your own working space where you can leave all your books and notes.

The inspiration I get comes from blogs, magazines and travels. My favourite home living styles: Nautical, Scandinavian and Nordic.
