Get involved on campus. A big problem for students is a feeling of not quite belonging. There are organizations putting on some event almost every weekend. If you’re resourceful and keep abreast of the campus calendar, you can find amazing activities to participate in. For example, there are sports clubs, fitness classes, and movie nights every so often that you can go to. Also, visiting professors may give free lectures on interesting topics. Many university departments have special arrangements in place to assist students, such as offering the rental of laptops, cameras, projectors, and other equipment for projects.

If you’re having issues or feeling stressed about classes, most campuses offer free student counseling services. Try to focus on a few things rather than juggling too many obligations. Learn to say no when you have to. This can be difficult, but an important step in learning to set boundaries with others. Don't become a statistic, and be determined to graduate. Seek out an academic advisor, who will help you with course conflicts, and deciding on a major.
Top 10 reasons why students drop-out:

1. Partying, not enough studying.
2. Homesickness, feeling left out.

5. Family issues.
6. Departmental concerns.
7. Choice of wrong major.
8. Lack of guidance.
9. Demands from employment.
10. Moving to new place.
