Off To A Great Start……How Are You Doing?

Image

first week or so of classes... Congrats! you made it! 🙂
lets take a look at this... yes another list, of things we need to make sure are 
on our minds coming into this next month of school...

-add and drops:
 if you needed to change a course, make sure all paperwork for those changes 
have been turned in and the changes are shown on your permanent. 

-pay attention to when final withdrawal dates for a class are for 2 reasons:  1. 
to get all or most of your money back for that class and 2. to not receive a W 
(withdrawal) for the class

-take a tally, how are things going with your roommate?
if the answer is not so well, then it's time to have a small melting pot. come 
together and discuss in a non threatening  manner the miscommunications you all 
are having and come up with a plan and schedule that will suit you both based on 
your personalities and rhythm (ex: one early bird, one night owl; make sure that 
when you come home, get up, or leave you are respectful of your roommate... 
don't be loud) 

-make any new friends?
 introduce yourself to some of your dorm/floor/hall mates

-finding your rhythm, what time are your classes?
 is your current schedule working well for you right now? does it leave ample 
time for peak study hours (peak: when you best retain information in addition to 
class time)

-have you gotten all your books? 
if not, its time to take care of that, or spend an awful lot of time at the 
library

-partying:
 The first few weeks are filled with parties, (as well as the rest of the year) 
make sure you are staying focused on your goals for being in school. WORK FIRST, 
then party. there will always be parties, but you will only take every test and 
turn in every assignment once. And you will only get your first final grade for 
that class once. So start the year off right and you have a better chance of 
finishing it right. and make that when you party, you do so responsibly
