First Day Pointers

Going to new college can be a confusing experience. We hope this website provided a lot of useful information, which will help to ease the transition to Wentworth. Here are a few helpful hints to make sure the first day of classes is smooth sailing!

  1. Go to bed early the night before! You don't need to see the guest on Conan. You want to be well rested and alert for your upcoming day of learning!
  2. Wake up early! This seems like common sense, but you don't want to be rushed on your first day of classes.
  3. Eat a good breakfast, something healthy and filling. The last thing you want is to have your stomach growling in the middle of a crowded classroom.

If you have the time, take your schedule and find all the classrooms the day beforehand. It will save time in the morning if you don't have to search for your room, or building for that matter!
