Pay attention to your class scheduleSome classes are just hard, in my case, I sucked at philosophy. Taking a course on what it means to think was way out of my league, which is why I ended the class with a C grade and a vow to never take a class in that subject again. When registering for classes, pay attention to the subjects you struggle in and try to not register for two difficult courses in the same semester. If you can't avoid it, opt for an elective or subject that comes easy to you to lessen the stress you'll feel during the semester.
Learn your study habitsNo two people study alike. In my case, I work great under pressure and have never had a problem writing a paper the night before it's due. In college, I had a roommate who would start assignments weeks before they were due. Figure out your study style, then prepare accordingly. If you plan ahead, then make use of that time by scheduling out readings and assignments throughout the weeks. If you like to leave things for the last minute, make sure you keep good track of your notes and study guides so you're not wasting any time trying to find all your study materials.
