    never hesitate to ask your professors for help. they are here for you; they are also available at their office. if you don't ask, you will fail. make sure to keep in touch with your professors if you are having concerns. in addition, counselors are even here to help you with anything you have in mind. remember, since you are paying for your tuition, you also pay to see the counselors, so take advantage of the resources that are available at sjsu.
