Tips to Succeed
- Block your classes together; you will be more likely to go.
- Get a flu shot.
- Go to class. (Special circumstance if you can't understand your professor, there are notes on the web, you will not be penalized for not attending class, or you can use the time you should be in class for studying, then it is okay to skip class). But overall, going to class can really help your grades.
- Go to your professor's office hours. It will help him know who you are, and will show that you are interested in learning and could help your grade at the end of the semester.
- Have study groups that are productive.
- If you are at all thinking about going to graduate school or working in the field that you are studying in, make friends with your teachers, and stay in contact with them throughout college. Just stop by their office hours, or send them an e-mail every once in awhile. You will need a letter of recommendation from them at some point.
- Join some sort of organization.
- Keep up with your reading in your classes, or you will regret it at exam time.
- Make friends in class who you can get notes from if you have to miss class.
- Make friends with your advisor so that they know you and can help you. They may be able to get you into that class that you absolutely have to have but couldn't get into.
- Make friends with your dean if it is at all possible, as they may be able to write you a great letter of recommendation if you need it.
- Meet your professors and TAs.
- Pick a major that you are interested in, but don't be afraid to change it once you get here. If you don't like your classes, you will not do as well.
- Start meeting people as soon as you get to school-in your dorm, on campus, wherever. You will be glad you did.
- Try to block your classes close enough together so that you don't have a class in Jester and then one in the CMA the next hour. This is so that you don't have to make it all the way across campus in 10 minutes. That hike is killer. And unless you are a speed demon, you will be a little late to your second class, or you'll have to leave your first class a little early.
