Day one in college, all students are usually ready to face what college life has to offer and achieve the best to their abilities through thick and thin. At that moment they visualize about the future and all they see is achieved dreams, doctors, musicians, engineers, artists, great people in the future. It all starts with great energy, punctual class attendance, and proper research for dissertations and frequent visits to the library to gain more knowledge.

There is proper participation of a student in class which is evident in their class assessments results and exam performances too, whereas for some it fades and the grades go from excellent to worse and others keep it burning and maintain the hard work. This new college life presents the new students with new things they never had before. Freedom is the most celebrated of all. It also comes with great excitement especially after meeting new people and making new friends.

It is at this point that self control is vital in everything a student does. It is easy to lose track in the early days of college and by the time one realizes it is probably too late .Some students perform really poorly due to lack of concentration and engagement in other useless activities. At this point an academic warning comes blinking the red signals. This academic probation most at time serves as a wakeup call for the many students at slumber land. For sure academic probation works for good for most students upon realization that college life is not a bed of roses. Some wake and dust their feet and take what it take to get back on course. The probation has an impact on their grades and therefore they have to work harder to counter the effect. Class attendance improves; they research for their thesis properly and finally realize it’s about dedication.
