It is that time of the year again! With the University of Oregon’s Fall Quarter getting underway tomorrow I asked the other advisors in the Office of Academic Advising for their best tip for students to get off on the right foot this fall, and this is what they had to say:
Dr. Tami Hill says be an active participant in your education, and she would know since she is also a professor!
Shasta had such a good idea we have included a Fall Schedule at a Glance here for you to download and use this term!
If you don’t know when or where your professors’ office hours are you can find that information on their course syllabus or you can ask them in class!
If you don’t understand a concept or an idea, make sure to ask for more information. If you do understand, ask questions that will take your analysis to the next level.
By visiting an academic advisor for help choosing your courses, you can be confident that the courses will make progress towards your degree completion and be in line with your skills and abilities.
You should think about school like a full-time job, spending at least 40 hours a week reading, attending classes, studying and working on homework. If you feel like you need to learn some strategies for success in any of these areas, visit the Teaching and Learning Center on campus!
