General Study Habits

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

  Sometimes it’s difficult for students to admit that they are having trouble with a class. Pride, embarrassment, or just the shock of realizing for the first time in your school career that you are unable to quickly master a topic can all contribute to this situation.

  Unfortunately, many students wait too long before doing something constructive about their difficulties in class. Should you find yourself having problems, you must not be afraid to ask for help as early in the semester as possible! Colleges offer many resources that can improve your academic performance. This study skills enhancement program is one of them; by taking the time to work through it, you are equipping yourself with some of the tools necessary to be a better student. There are also other ways that you can get help with classwork or general study skills. Let’s explore a few.
