What Can You Do to Succeed This Fall?

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:

Tami's Tip

Tami Hill

Dr. Tami Hill says be an active participant in your education, and she would know since she is also a professor!

Shasta With her White Board Wisdom

Shasta McLester

Shasta had such a good idea we have included a Fall Schedule at a Glance here for you to download and use this term!

Megan's Tip

Megan Coble

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!

Jenni's Tip

Jenni VanWyk

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.

Arturo's Tip

Arturo Zavala

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.

Andrew's Tip

Andrew Wahlstrom

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!
