Before Starting Classes


Develop a Routine

  • Make sure you have all your supplies for class - Laptop, textbook or ebook, pencil or pen, paper, planner and any additional materials. If you are using a laptop for online classes, make sure you have headphones with a microphone if possible for listening to lectures or discussions.
  • Is your laptop charged? Check the night before class to make sure your laptop is charged. If not, try and find a near place where you could plug it in.
  • Turn off your cell phone - If your taking classes online or in-person, turning off your cell phone before class will prevent you from any distractions when receiving a text messages and notifications.
  • Course Syllabus - Keep in touch with your instructors as the semester progresses. Instructor, department chair, and school dean information is provided on each syllabus.
  • Check your campus e-mail - Check your campus e-mail daily for important e-mails from the college.
