Whether you are beginning the fall semester at MSU as a returning student or freshman, there are a few things you should know to help make the most out of this semester.
1. Utilize Your Resources
The faculty and staff are here because they want to see you succeed! Take advantage of the time you have with your professors in and out of class to ask questions and get involved with the discussion. Most professors are more than willing to meet with students during their office hours or by appointment if they need additional help outside of class. If you think that you would benefit from having a tutor, look no further than the Tutoring & Learning Center located in Camden Carroll Library. Just don't be afraid to ask for help!
2. Stay Connected
Stay up-to-date with what is happening in your classes and on campus by signing up for Eagle Alerts and checking Blackboard daily. Eagle Alerts can be set up to notify you by cell phone/email of any campus or local emergencies, class cancellations, or delays and by checking your Blackboard you will be able to keep up with class assignments, discussions, and grades.
3. Get Involved
The best way for you to meet new friends and discover campus is to get out and get involved. Whether it is attending a free athletic event or joining a class at the Recreation & Wellness Center there is always something going on for students to do. If you are looking for something that requires a little more involvement, look no further than the many student organizations that are active on campus or any of the free student events planned through the Office of Student Activities, Inclusion, & Leadership (SAIL).
And now you know the 3 simple ways to get much more out of this semester.
