students’ chances for success More Student Success
(researched based article) Do take responsibility for your success or failure at college. In college, you control your fate, and the more you work at your studies and the more you actively participate in your classes, the higher the probability for academic success. Do set reasonable and achievable academic goals each semester. Push yourself to perform at your highest level, but don't make those goals so high that you fall into a downward spiral Don't expect your college professors to be anything like your high school teachers. The best students take the time to learn what each professor expects from them. Do develop a good note-taking system both for reading assignments and for class lectures. Find a system that works for you, such as outlining, or develop your own. Don't get in the habit of skipping classes. Attending class is a critical component of learning the material and class notes are often a key part of studying for exams. Don't compare your academic performance to anyone else. Each person is unique, and comparing yourself to others just sets you up for disappointment The Do's and Don'ts: Tips for thriving in college
