  • You are not bothering us. This is what we are here for. We know that you’re smart and self-sufficient, but some of these resources may be new to you. We will not think any less of you if you ask for help! (IF we were judgmental people, the students we would think were dumb would be the ones who wander around and don’t get what they need because they didn’t ask for help!)
