"Carpe Diem" is Latin for "seize the moment". In other words, do the best you can with what you have so that you have no regrets. If you choose to go to university, then you should aim to make the most it.
In order to fully enjoy your university experience, you should try to:
1. Leave your comfort zone
Try new things, join a club or circle, make friends with people from different backgrounds. This will help you enjoy your university life and make memories that will last forever.
2. Have an open mind
Talk to as many people as possible, students and teachers. You can learn much about people's values and ideas and learn more about yourself too. This will help you grow as a person.
3. Be an active learner
There is no day like today so be an active participant in your day. Asking questions when you don't understand and sharing ideas in class are good ways to be an active learner. If you are scared of making mistakes, then remember that making mistakes is the best way to improve. Just try!
4. Check in with yourself
Starting university can be a big change for some people. Sometimes you might feel homesick or stressed. It's important to listen to your body and understand if you need to rest or if you need to talk to someone about your worries. Teachers and staff are always here to help you if you need.
