Transcript

  • 1. *Note! These are JUST the BASICS! For thorough ASP know-how:attend workshops/check out the website/see us in-person in 012 Memorial!
  • 2.  Find out what resources are available to you on campus, like…. ▪ Library & research databases ▪ Guest speakers ▪ Professors – especially during office hours! ▪ The University Tutorial Program, the Writing Center, the Counseling Center, etc! Resources = Not just for academics! Often you can get food, entertainment, rides to the mall, and other freebies through Hofstra’s many events & activities!
  • 3.  Set specific goals* Make deadlines for yourself Get a planner to keep things together Do this: “Have math homework done by Wednesday” Not this: “Math homework ugh, fml” *
  • 4.  Do a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threat s) assessment of your own academic skills Know what your strengths are so you can use the skills you already have – and build on your weaknesses until they become strengths! ▪ If you don’t know how, that’s ok! There are tons of resources on this website – and on campus – to discuss this with you! We are here to help! ▪ Not sure where to go first? See CUA/ASP in Memorial Hall
  • 5.  HUGE for getting good grades* Your planner is your new BFF! It’s a universal basic skill that will get you employed (eventually) *
  • 6.  Nobody will be telling you what (how, when, why) to do. It is all on you. You make your own schedule and choose activities outside of the class. Technically, you don’t HAVE to do your homework. But it WILL affect your final grade.
  • 7.  Studying in college is different than what you are used to.* You have to be prepared beforehand. You may not be reminded so it’s up to you to figure out when to do what. *
  • 8.  Professors expect YOU to initiate communication if you need help You are supposed to keep track of all the due dates – HINT: they’re on the syllabus! Tests are less often but cover larger amounts of material
