1.Your friends will change a lot over the next four years. Let them.

你的朋友会在接下来的四年变很多。请不要干涉。

2.Call someone you love back home a few times a week, even if just for a few minutes.

每周打给家里你所爱的人几次电话,即使只讲几分钟。


3.In college more than ever before, songs will attach themselves to memories. Every month or two, make a mix cd, mp3 folder, whatever - just make sure you keep copies of these songs. Ten years out, they'll be as effective as a journal in taking you back to your favorite moments.

在大学音乐会比以往更能引发一段回忆。请每一两个月,编一张CD,或者电脑上的MP3文件夹,总之保证你复制了那些音乐。十年之后,它能够像一本日记一般带你回忆过去最美好的光阴。

4.Take naps in the middle of the afternoon with reckless abandon.

每天中午都要毅然决然的小憩一下。

5.Adjust your schedule around when youare most productive and creative. If you're nocturnal and do your best work late at night, embrace that. It may be the only time in your life when you can.

调整你的日程到你最有效率和创造力的方式。如果你是夜猫子并且在晚上工作最棒,那就接受这种模式。这可能是你人生中唯一能这么做的时间。

6.If you write your best papers the night before they are due, don't let people tell you that you "should be more organized" or that you "should plan better." Different things work for different people. Personally, I worked best under pressure - so I always procrastinated... and always kicked ass (which annoyed my friends to no end). ;-) Use the freedom that comes with not having grades first semester to experiment and see what works best for you.

如果你在快要交差时熬夜赶出来的论文最好,那就别在乎别人说你“你该学会安排时间”或者“有计划更好”。每个人都有不同的工作方式。就我而言,我在压力下做得更好,所以我很拖沓= =,而且总是弄砸(?)(这让我的朋友发无名火XDDD)好好利用第一学期不打分数的自由吧,去经历不同的事然后找出最好的适合你的方式。

7.At least a few times in your college career, do something fun and irresponsible when you should be studying. The night before my freshman year psych final, my roommate somehow scored front row seats to the Indigo Girls at a venue 2 hours away. I didn't do so well on the final, but I haven't thought about psych since 1993. I've thought about the experience of going to that show (with the guy who is now my son's godfather) at least once a month ever since.

在大学至少有那么几次放 纵享乐,无视你本来应该在学习。在我大一精神科期末考前夜,我的室友居然搞到蓝色少女合唱团的前排票,而演出的地点要两小时路程。我期末考表现不怎么样, 但在1993年之后我从未怀念考试,我只怀念去看演出的经历(还是和现在我儿子的教父一起去的),而且从那以后每个月都想起那么一两次。

8.Become friends with your favorite professors. Recognize that they can learn from you too - in fact, that's part of the reason they chose to be professors.

和你喜欢的教授交朋友。同时记得他们也会从你身上学到东西——事实上这也是他们想当教授的原因之一。

9.Carve out an hour every single day to be alone. (Sleeping doesn't count.)

每天匀出一小时独处。(睡觉不算)

10.Go on dates. Don't feel like every date has to turn into a relationship.

出去约会,但别想着每个约会都将变成恋爱。

11.Don't date someone your roommate has been in a relationship with.

不要和你室友的EX交往。

12.When your friends' parents visit, include them. You'll get free food, etc., and you'll help them to feel like they're cool, hangin' with the hip college kids.

当你朋友的父母来访,接纳他们。你将能白吃白喝什么的。。而且你会使他们觉得自己很酷,能够和时髦的大学孩子打成一片。

13.In the first month of college, send a hand-written letter to someone who made college possible for you and describe your adventures thus far. It will mean a lot to him/her now, and it will mean a lot to you in ten years when he/she shows it to you.

入学一个月,你该手写一封信给帮助你进入大学的人,告诉他们至今你的经历。这对她/他而言意义很大,而在十年后她/他将信给你看时也是如此。

14.Embrace the differences between you and your classmates. Always be asking yourself, "what can I learn from this person?" More of your education will come from this than from any classroom.

包容你和同学的差异。时刻提醒自己“我能从他身上学习什么?”这比上课能学到的多多了。

15.All-nighters are entirely overrated.

所有夜猫子都被高估了。(?我猜是熬夜的人都高估自己的熬夜能力?)

16.For those of you who have come to college in a long-distance relationship with someone from high school: despite what many will tell you, it can work. The key is to not let your relationship interfere with your college experience. If you don't want to date anyone else, that's totally fine! What's notfine, however, is missing out on a lot of defining experiences because you're on the phone with your boyfriend/girlfriend for three hours every day.

对于和高中同学异地恋的大学生:别管别人说什么,异地恋能成功的。关键是不要让你们的关系干涉你的大学经历。如果你不想和别人约会,完全没关系!有关系的是,你将因为每天打3个小时电话给男/女朋友而错过很多经典的经历了。

17.Working things out between friends is best done in person, not over email. (IM does not count as "in person.") Often someone's facial expressions will tell you more than his/her words.

解决朋友之间问题的最好方式是面谈,不要用电邮。(即时通讯不算“当面”)一个人的表情胜过言语。

18.Take risks.

去冒险。

19.Don't be afraid of (or excited by) the co-ed bathrooms. The thrill is over in about 2 seconds.

别对公共浴室感到恐惧(或者产生兴奋感= =)。这种感觉进去两秒钟就没了。

20.Wednesday is the middle of the week; therefore on wednesday night the week is more than half over. You should celebrate accordingly. (It makes thursday and friday a lot more fun.)

周三是一周的中间。因此周三晚上表示一周大部分过去了,你应该庆祝一下。(这让周四周五更有趣了)

21.Welcome failure into your lives. It's how we grow. What matters is not that you failed, but that you recovered.

直面失败。我们因失败成长。关键不是你受伤而是你愈合。

22.Take some classes that have nothing to do with your major(s), purely for the fun of it.

选些非专业课,纯粹因爱好去学。

23.It's important to think about the future, but it's more important to be present in the now. You won't get the most out of college if you think of it as a stepping stone.

计划未来很重要,但活在当下更重要。你如果拿大学当垫脚石你就不能充分利用大学。

24.When you're living on a college campus with 400 things going on every second of every day, watching TV is pretty much a waste of your time and a waste of your parents' money. If you're going to watch, watch with friends so at least you can call it a "valuable social experience."

当大学每时每刻有400件事在进行,看电视完全就是浪费时间和金钱。如果你一定要看,至少和朋友一起看吧,好歹能算“有价值的社交经历”

25.Don't be afraid to fall in love. When it happens, don't take it for granted. Celebrate it, but don't let it define your college experience.

不要害怕陷入爱情。当爱来临,也不要当做必然。感谢恋爱,但不要让它主导你的大学生活。

26.Much of the time you once had for pleasure reading is going to disappear. Keep a list of the books you would have read had you had the time, so that you can start reading them when you graduate.

为享乐而阅读的时光过去了。是时候列一张你想读的书单等到毕业开始读吧。(?理解无能了)

27.Things that seem like the end of the world really dobecome funny with a little time and distance. Knowing this, forget the embarassment and skip to the good part.

看上去是世界末日的事情,过段时间真的会显得很搞笑。知道了这个,你就能忘掉尴尬直接跳到之后好的部分了。

28.Every once in awhile, there will come an especially powerful moment when you can actually feel that an experience has changed who you are. Embrace these, even if they are painful.

隔三差五会有极为震撼的时刻发生重大事件让你切身体会到自己为之改变,接纳这些事吧,即便遍体鳞伤。

29.No matter what your political or religious beliefs, be open-minded. You're going to be challenged over the next four years in ways you can't imagine, across all fronts. You can't learn if you're closed off.

撇开你的政治主张或宗教信仰,做旷达的人。在接下来四年你会受到各种方式的挑战,你甚至无法想象它们从各个方面而来的架势。如果你闭塞自己的观念,你就无法学习。

30.If you need to get a job, find something that you actually enjoy. Just because it's work doesn't mean it has to suck.

如果你想工作,做你真正喜欢的。就算是工作也不应该无聊。

31.Don't always lead. It's good to follow sometimes.

不要总是做领导者,有时候跟从也很好。

32.Take a lot of pictures. One of my major regrets in life is that I didn't take more pictures in college. My excuse was the cost of film and processing. Digital cameras are cheap and you have plenty of hard drive space, so youhave no excuse.

多拍照。我大学最后悔的事情之一就是没有多拍几张照片。我的借口是胶卷和冲洗的钱。数码相机现在不贵而且你有足够存储空间用,所以你没有借口了。

33.Your health and safety are more important than anything.

你的健康和安全最最宝贵。

34.Ask for help. Often.

学会求助。并习惯。

35.Half of you will be in the bottom half of your class at any given moment. Way more than half of you will be in the bottom half of your class at some point in the next four years. Get used to it.

你有一半几率始终在班里垫底,而你四年里偶尔垫底的几率甚至更高。你要习惯。(其实我想翻成淡定··)

36.In ten years very few of you will look as good as you do right now, so secretly revel in how hot you are before it's too late.

十年后你多半没有现在这么迷人,所以悄悄地自恋吧,别等到来不及的时候。

37.In the long run, where you go to college doesn't matter as much as what you do with the opportunities you're given there. The MIT name on your resume won't mean much if that's the onlything on your resume. As a student here, you will have access to a variety of unique opportunities that no one else will ever have - don't waste them.

长远来看,你读什么大学没有你在大学所把握的机遇重要。你简历上写着麻省理工并不意味着什么如果其他什么都没有。作为麻省理工的学生,你会比别人有更多的独一无二的机遇——别错过。

38.On the flip side, don't try to do everything.Balance = well-being.

另一方面,别试图做遍所有事情。平衡=充分

39.Make perspective a priority. If you're too close to something to have good perspective, rely on your friends to help you.

长远为重。如果你过于沉迷于当下的事而失去大局观,让你的朋友帮你。

40.Eat badly sometimes. It's the last time in your life when you can do this without feeling guilty about it.

偶尔饮食无序。这是你这辈子最后的机会去这么做还不自责的。

41.Make a complete ass of yourself at least once, preferably more. It builds character.

出次洋相,多几次更好。这能铸造性格。

42.Wash your sheets more than once a year. Trust me on this one.

一年洗一次以上床单吧,这个可以有。(我好意译了。。)

43.If you are in a relationship and noneof your friends want to hang out with you and your significant other, pay attention. They usually know better than you do.

如果你在恋爱,然后没有一个朋友想和你&你的恋人一起出去,请留心。他们比你更能看清楚(他是怎么一个人)。

44.Don't be afraid of the weird pizza topping combinations that your new friend from across the country loves. Some of the truly awful ones actually taste pretty good. Expand your horizons.

别怕你来自外地的朋友喜欢的披萨配料组合,有些确实很难吃但有些确实很美味。开拓眼界吧。

45.Explore the campus thoroughly. Don't get caught.

充分探索你的校园。但别被抓。(别进禁区么?。。好冷的点。。。)

46.Life is too short to stick with a course of study that you're no longer excited about. Switch, even if it complicates things.

人生苦短别坚持学你失去兴趣的课程。换掉吧,即便会很麻烦。

47.Tattoos are permanent. Be very certain.

纹身是一辈子的事,请谨慎。

48.Don't make fun of prefrosh. That was you like 2 hours ago.

别取笑菜鸟(新生)那就是两小时前的你。(我猜这个是刚刚入学的学生看的,所以他们看的时刻刚刚入学两小时左右)

49.Enjoy every second of the next four years. It is impossible to describe how quickly they pass.

享受接下来四年的每一秒,你无法描述它多快就逝去了。

50.This is the only time in your lives when your only real responsibility is to learn. Try to remember how lucky you are every day.

这是人生中仅有的时刻,你仅有的职责是去学习。试着每一天都告诉自己,你有多幸运。

Be yourself. Create. Inspire, and be inspired. Grow. Laugh. Learn. Love.

Welcome to some of the best years of your lives.

做自己。开创,激励他人,被激励。去成长,去笑,去学,去爱。
