Spring 2014 is upon us, so as we enter into this new semester here are some simple suggestions to hopefully make your semester a worthwhile and successful experience.
- Read your course catalog; well, at least know where it is.
- Get involved even if that is just knowing your roommates name and being able to identify 3 of your neighbors!
- Read your text books (at least purchase them by the end of the first week of class!)
- Find the Student Health and Wellness building (did you know we have our own doctors and pharmacy?).
- Know the balance on your ATM card – this will help you gauge when to place your first “mom/dad, I might need some money” call.
- If you never sleep and eat only food from vending machines you will need to know where the Student Health and Wellness building is… See #5.
- Go to class – it’s that easy!
- Pay attention to deadlines – know when your tests are, what you should be reading, and when homework assignments are due.
- If you have in-class academic accommodations, start by picking up your Letters of Accomodation (LOAs) in room 335 West Hall.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help! If you’re not sure whom to ask, feel free to contact the Student Disability Services Office and we will send you in the right direction.
If you need tutoring or help studying check out our drop-in tutoring schedule. How does it work? It’s easy, just come by when the tutor you want to meet with is available and get help. All of our tutors have been through the classes and know the material in the subject they tutor. Best of all it’s FREE.
