Advisor Tips

Our advisors work hard to make sure that students are taken care of and prepared for their courses. Have you ever wondered what helped our advisors get through school?

 

Take a look at some of the tips that have helped your advisors in recent years during their studies!

 

  • Put away distractions and move your phone away while studying.
  • Work your hardest course first and then finish out your day with the course you like the most!
  • Submit assignments on weekends. Any work that can be submitted on weekends will help lower the number of overdue assignments and help to reduce stress.
  • Having a consistent schedule can really help to make sure you don’t feel overwhelmed. Try using a planner and color-coding it so you know exactly what is due and when.
  • If you know you have a paper or project coming up soon, start working on it in advance. You do not want to spend the day before rushing to finish it. Procrastination is not your friend!
