Hey First Years!
I hope you enjoyed your days off, be sure to thank Mother Nature for the extra days to relax! Now that we’re back to the daily grind, I’m sure some of you are falling a bit behind. It happens to the best of us, it’s just important to know what steps you should take to get yourself back on track!
Set up a plan to get everything done. If you have any overdue work, do that first and get it in as soon as possible if your professor accepts late work. Then work on assignments in order based on due date. You can do it!!
Work, work, work
Get to work! Go to the library, start a study group, speak with your professor, sit down in bed and just get some homework and studying done. Once you start, it’ll be easier to finish. Starting is the hardest part!
Don’t rush. If you need a break, take one. For ever half hour of studying/homework you should take a 5-10 minute break. Just think– when running a marathon you don’t except to sprint the entire time. In order to get everything done you need to make sure you’re eating and that you’re not too stressed out!
Believe in yourself
This is key! Without believing in yourself, you’ll never get your best work done. Remember: I believe in you.
If you need it, schedule an appointment with a tutor for some help. Reach out to your professor. Go to the math lab, accounting lab, language lab, writing center, or anywhere else on campus to get the help you need to succeed. We’re all here to help you and we want to see you doing your best!
If you ever need anything, feel free to reach out to us at the First Year Experience office in Meier Hall 100A! You can call us at (978) 542-2618, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week!!
