Tips for Students to Thrive, Not Just Survive

Students who attend class, eat right, and get involved are much more successful than those who don’t…

We’ve compiled some simple and proven strategies that lead to success in college. Consider working a few into your next conversation…or series of text messages.


Attend Class

Stay on Top of Coursework and Ask for Help

  • The Learning Center helps students with time management skills and tutoring support. Students can make appointments online.
  • Students should make a habit of meeting faculty members during posted office hours.

Know About and Tap Into Campus Resources

Put Yourself Out There

Eat Right & Exercise

  • Good nutrition is an important foundation to success. Learn more about meal plans offered on campus.
  • Students can swim in the pool, play basketball in three full size courts, work out in the  Fitness Center or take classes in the Physical Education building.
  • Did you know the Loop Road is 3.1 miles? Students only need a good pair of sneakers to walk or run almost 5K without leaving campus.

Obey the Rules

Again, sounds simple, but a safe and healthy campus community is everyone’s responsibility. Familiarize yourself with our Student Code of Conduct.
