Tips for College Success

  • Talk to your professors on a regular basis.  The more they know you, the more helpful they may be in and outside of classes.
  • Attend classes, even if you find the subject boring or hard to understand.
  • Utilize resources on campus:  Library, computer labs, tutoring in the Learning Center, Career Development Center, Counseling Center, Financial Aid Office, Registrar’s Office, etc.
  • Do your homework (including papers, assignments, studying for exams/quizzes, and reading).
  • Create a schedule for each week—update it as new things are known to you.
  • Set aside at least two hours each day for studying in a quiet, distraction-free area.
  • Seek help from your academic advisor about options for your future courses, internships, and plans for a career.
  • Don’t procrastinate!
  • Do your own research on classes that you are interested in taking, as well as important information about your major—ask a faculty member if you have any questions or need clarification on anything!
  • Join clubs and organizations on campus to expand your social network and join activities—also look good on your resume!
  • Try to set up your semester schedule so that you have a balance of easier and harder classes each semester; also mix in general education courses with your major/minor courses to balance out your schedule each semester.
