Most student success depends on the individual student. If that is the case then what can students do to make sure their academic program prepares them with the right skills to succeed? Here are a few ideas:
Be willing to share, talk and listen with faculty and other students.
Give it your best by being diligent in your studies and class preparation.
Develop an awareness of your environment and extend your learning experience beyond the classroom.
Be discerning in what you read.
Set career goals now and work toward them.
Keep an open mind and be open to the examination of new ideas and facts.
Be perceptive and learn to “read between the lines.”
Practice humility. Realize that however much you know, there is a lot more to be learned, and that some of what you think you know might be wrong
Have fun! College should be a fun experience. Enjoy it.
