These days, it’s not just children that are going back to school. Many people have found themselves seeking higher education, entering into retraining and vocational programs in hopes of changing their current situation. However, it can be difficult to adjust to a classroom setting after years without instruction. One of the most important things you can do is be prepared, and the key to being prepared is getting organized.

In order to succeed in your academic endeavor, you’ll need the proper tools. Anticipate the courses you are going to be taking and do some research about those classes. Can you find a syllabus from previous section? Are there notes about the professor somewhere online (for instance: this teacher talks fast, get a pocket recorder)? This kind of research is not only good practice for the assignments you’ll have to be doing, but will let you know if specific materials are required. You’re going to be creating a shopping list to take on your classes.

The next step requires a different kind of preparation- a mental fortitude that will drive you to success. Due to the many obligations in your life, you may find it difficult to balance school, work, and your social/familial life. This could have a major impact on your self identity as you juggle priorities, trying to please others while driving yourself crazy. Make sure you know what is important to you and stick to your commitments. Family and friends will be there to support you, but this is something you have to see through on your own.

Finally, and most importantly, make sure you relax! School is challenging, yes, but it’s not impossible. Do the best you can, try as hard as you can, and make sure you’re getting everything out of this experience that you truly want. Think back to your days as a youngster. Maybe you didn’t pay attention because it was too easy, maybe you stopped trying because it was too hard. Or maybe there were just too many pheromones in the room to watch a boring slide show. Whatever the reason, realize that your desire to go back to school is for self improvement. You are actively taking steps to reach your goals, so reward yourself! Keep things simple, stay organized, and remember why school is so worthwhile.
