Tips to Succeed
- Ask the TAs questions-that's why they are there.
- Check your e-mail constantly.
- Do your homework yourself.
- Get involved in things you love, and develop your passions.
- Give yourself a budget!
- Go to class-even the lectures.
- Go to professors' office hours if you need one-on-one attention; even if a class is not in your intended major, take it if you've heard it's interesting.
- If you need help, get a tutor-some are free, and the ones who charge are cheap.
- Keep up with your homework-procrastinating is the worst thing to do in college.
- Pick classes that interest you.
- Talk to upperclassmen about which professors to take and which ones to avoid.
