Value critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Have differing styles of delivering content. Find out how to make the best of your teacher's style, to match your learning style.
Expect you to synthesize information, even seemingly across topics.
Do NOT like stupid questions - ie. don't be so lazy to look info up first before asking!
Guiding Principle
College is a learning environment in which you take responsibility for thinking through and applying what you have learned.
What If I Get Lost?
It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, lost, unmotivated, distracted, even depressed. College is often a big change, and together with many of life's challenges, can seem daunting. If you get lost along the way, talk to your friends, talk to your teachers, talk to SOMEONE. Believe it or not, you are NOT alone. Your situation is NOT unique!
Take control of your own education: think of yourself as a scholar
Get to know your professors; they are your single greatest resource
Be assertive. Create your own support systems, and seek help when you realize you may need it
Be creative! Find your OWN college-coping style
Take control of your time. Plan ahead to satisfy academic obligations and make room for everything else
Make time for rest, relax, and play. Your brain learns and remembers better that way.
Think beyond the moment: set goals for the semester, the year, your college career.
Why am I here?
College = Freedom = RESPONSIBILITY
YOU are in charge of your own learning.
