Christian students can start 2013 on the right foot

As the end of 2012 approaches, many men and women of faith are getting ready to make New Year’s resolutions. While losing weight and spending more time with family and friends top many people’s lists, individuals enrolled at Christian colleges and universities should think about how they can apply themselves academically and become better students.

USA Today recently outlined some useful suggestions for students thinking about forming their New Year’s resolutions, and studying hard and maintaining a solid GPA were at the top of the list.

“Even though the weather is cold, and one of the only interesting upcoming events is the sunny prospect of spring break, focusing on classes and making decent grades should continue to be a priority until graduation,” said Krystyna Biassou, a USA Today collegiate correspondent.

Other suggestions the news source offered to students included managing stress effectively and giving to charity, something that many men and women of faith are familiar with.

Fox Business also outlined its top suggestions for academic New Year’s resolutions, and making saving a priority was among them.

Shelley Solheim, director of financial education at Capital One, told the news source that while saving money may be challenging for some students, setting realistic goals and taking saving seriously can pay off in the long run.
