Many professors are very helpful and are willing to help you in anything you need. Some are strict but it gives you more discipline as a student
Laura from El Monte, CA
Three skills came up to my mind after I walked out from each class: time management, perseverance and creativity.
Time management is essential in everything that you do in this life and you will practice this in full extent if you are a full-time student. You are expected to come up with innovative ideas to being able to balance all classes, work and extracurricular activities, not to mention family or social times. The key to time management though, is being able to prioritize what matters the most and what is going to give you the most benefits or if a task has a closer deadline. When this is mastered, then whatever is left will fall in its place.
The next skill is perseverance. There is a famous quote that says, �Perseverance is not a long run but instead many short runs.� This is exactly the way professors will test you stress threshold. You really just have to follow a routine that has worked for you to become successful. It could be studying right after class that makes a difference between an A from a B.
The third skill is creativity. While this skill is sometimes bypassed by many college students, this is one of the most important things to do when everything fails; this includes the first two skills. Being creative is really not hard. You just have to find ways to learn differently; being open- minded. This means, for example, that you can study with a group rather than studying alone. The trick here is to find at most five people including you and really help each other master the material.
If you really want to learn in college and stand out from the crowd then, you will have to practice your good skills or work to make them better. These three, always work for me but whatever works for you. Good luck!
