ACADEMIC SUCCESS TIP
Posted September 9th, 2009 by Kimberly K. Ballard
Wow! You have already completed three weeks in the fall semester. What should you be focusing on right now? Here are some suggestions:
- Now is a good time to make a list of questions to ask your professors. Plan when you will go to see your professors this week to get their assistance. It is easier for a professor to get you on the right path if you ask questions early and often.
- This weekend is the perfect time to get caught up on your outlines if they are still non-existent or barely begun. You have enough material in most courses to be able to determine both the “big picture” of the sub-topics or topics and how the parts fit into that whole.
- Now is a good time to use a monthly calendar to write down all deadlines for papers, projects, mid-terms, or assignments. Plan over the next month when you will work on specific tasks for those longer-range deadlines.
