We have one week of classes in the books! Last week went off without a hitch. It was so nice to see students on all of our campuses.
When I started college, I received advise from many individuals. So… if you would, please allow me to provide some advice for you.
Here’s my Top Ten suggestion list for achieving student success:
10. Don’t forget a notebook and pen.
How can you take class notes without them?
9. Pioneer Pride.
Don your blue and white BC3 garb. Everyone loves school spirit.
8. Read, read, read.
Those assignments are on the syllabus for a reason. Don’t fall behind.
7. Arrive on time.
Nothing bugs a professor more than tardy students.
6. Study in between classes.
If you have a break between classes, hit the books. You’ll be amazed: no all-nighters to cram for a test.
5. Find a study partner.
Tag teaming with a study buddy helps increase your chances for better grades.
4. Get to know your professor.
If there is a break to be had, you increase the chances if the professor knows you.
3. Visit your professors during office hours.
Not only will your professors get to know you, you pick the brain of the experts.
2. Turn off your cell phone!
The texting can wait until after class.
1. Don’t miss class.
Not only did you pay for it, your brain will reap the benefits.
