Don't go it alone
New People, Places, Ideas: Learn out of Class
College is about more than training for a career. It's also about discovering yourself and learning to think and live independently. A lot of that occurs outside the classroom. The new people you meet. The new environments you visit. The new ideas you find. This is the stuff that helps you learn more about life.
Academic Support: Make the Grades
Yes, new people and places are great. But you still need to succeed in the classroom.
Because your college wants you to succeed, you'll find it provides tons of resources to help you. Some examples are:
Academic advising. Advisers will help you choose areas of study and courses right for you and help you make progress toward graduation.
Tutoring. When you have difficulty with a particular class, tutors are often available to help you one-on-one.
Academic counseling. Get help building basic
academic skills, like setting goals, taking notes, overcoming test
Study groups. Many schools encourage students to work together outside of class to help one another succeed in a particular course. Services for first-generation, low-income and disabled students. Some colleges offer academic support geared especially for students whose backgrounds may create challenges for them.
Social Support: Count on It
Your college will also have many resources to support your social and emotional well-being.
On-campus counseling services can help with issues such as
homesickness, roommate conflicts, family problems, dating and more.
There are also clubs and social organizations that can help you have more fun during college. They can even lead you to new career paths.
