  • Take Control--> Get to classes, Do your homework, Give your papers to professors on time... you are in college now!

  • Get to Class --> Attendance is super important!  Do not think that you can miss a class and  "It does not matter! I will get the notes later."  When students have this attitude they can not be successful.  Remember that if you miss 3, 4, 5 or 6 classes out of 30 meetings you've missed 20% of the content! This will negatively impact your grades and GPA.  How can you study for exams and pass your tests if you have not learned the content?


  • Pay Attention --> You need to develop a new habit of paying attention and be aware of the need for it!  You Tube videos, text messages, tweets and many others  are too short and  these are the interactions you are used to.  Remember that your lectures will be at least 50 minutes long!  The more you practice paying attention the better you will get.  Start on the very first day and you will see that after 21 days a new habit will have developed in your brain!Focus, Focus, Focus.


  • Study, Study, Study -->   For every 1-hour of lecture  you will need 2 hours of preparation or studying for each class! Read your assigned reading selections, review your notes, complete your homework... study hard!


  • Read Instructions and Answer Exactly What It is Asked -->  if someone asks you for your name you don't give your address so answer exactly what the professor is asking you.  Read all instructions carefully and divide them in smaller steps or parts.  Be sure to understand everything that is being asked of you and more important, have a plan for completing all steps on time.


  • Appreciate Feedback -->  Whenever your professor returns exams or papers with comments, read them carefully.  Do the exercise again  inside your head for additional  practice and try to include the information that the professor gave you.  Comments from the professor are very important and help you understand the information better.


  • Use the Office Hour -->  every professor has devoted Office Hours to see their students outside of class time.  Use this resource!  You can ask questions, clarify information, exchange ideas and concepts for future projects.  We are here to help you!


  • Connect with Others on Campus-->  sign up for a student organization, belong to a student group, go to different activities and HAVE FUN!


Good luck to all!
