Congratulations !

The first two weeks of the semester are done! Are you staying on top of your classes? As promised in last week’s email, we have some more tips for you to keep you engaged with your courses. A question for you first: Have you met your professors yet? No, not face to face, but virtually.

One of the best ways to connect with your course is to introduce yourself to your faculty members. Remember those syllabi? They have office hours (or student hours) listed. Take advantage of those times and make it a goal to virtually drop-in this week.

Feeling unsure? Check out what your faculty wishes you knew.

Speaking of meeting and connecting, there are a lot of other people on your team.  Now is the time to get started with all the academic supports available to you at the Writing Center and the Campus Learning Center. Now is also a great time to visit with a writing consultant or tutor: make an appointment today!

Here is this week’s to-do list:

Want more tips before next week’s email? Check out resources about how to stay in sync with your asynchronous classes on the Campus Learning Center's website.

You can contact us at any time for personalized support at any point—just email
