Transitioning from high school to college can be really tough. It is a completely different environment, and most people are not used to having so much independence. So how exactly do you navigate your new world? Trial and error of course, but it doesn’t hurt to ask for tips.

Luckily, thanks to this hilarious video from Youtubers IFHT (IF*CKINGHATETHAT), you now have a step by step guide on how to be a college student. It is really the most comprehensive guide out there, and one that every one should check out. No matter what year you are in school.

With 31 steps, they cover everything. From step 1: “Decide What Type of Student You Want to Be” to step 9: “Learn the Stages of an All Nighter” to possibly the most important step 20: “Avoid Pamphlets at all Costs.” Although, to be honest, we would have added a half step there to also avoid being the person handing them out. You never want to be that person. Everyone hates that person.

As we have said before, there are mistakes you will make as a freshman, but we love you for them anyway. Everyone makes mistakes, because everyone is trying to figure the same things out. As the video says, college is a time for firsts, some are better than others but everyone goes through them none the less.

So whether you are new to college, or a few years graduated, check out there hilarious (and actually kind of helpful) video. If we can survive, you can too.
