10 Tips for Academic Success

  • ATTEND CLASS! Be prepared to actively participate.
  • Get to know your professors. Schedule an appointment to meet during their office hours. Discuss the course topic and how you are progressing.
  • Read ahead and work ahead. Do not fall behind. The semester moves very quickly and it is very difficult to catch up.
  • For a serious study group and hold each other accountable.
  • Establish regular study hours.
  • Utilize HU academic support services:
  • Know your academic strengths and where you are academically challenged. Used this information to develop a plan for developing your skills.
  • Check your HU EMAIL several times a day.
  • Practive healthy habits.
  • Pursue opportunities to enrich your academic experience. Consider honors courses, if you are eligible. PArticipate in an experiential learning program (study abroad, alternative spring break, first year experience programs).

When you want something in life, you have to focus. Roslyn McMillan
