Getting back on track after Fall Break
Fall Break is over, and classes have resumed. Keeping on track in class at this point in the semester can be difficult.
The best way to come back from break, according to Lee University senior Haley Foreman, is to just jump back into it.
“If you don’t, you will get very behind,” Foreman said.
According to reachout.com, setting goals can help when coming back to class. Goals are often beneficial for keeping students motivated and for moving them towards something larger than what they are doing at one moment.
Setting goals for the semester, the year or even the week can help keep things in focus.
According to collegemagazine.com, the age-old tip of “getting to class on time” can be extremely beneficial.
Not only does getting to class on time benefit the student, but it also allows for all students to get all of the class content without the interruption of someone coming in late.
“The best thing a student can do when coming back from break is to keep engaged in the material,” senior Katlin Burk, a math tutor, said. “Getting help from your professor or a tutor when things start not making sense is way better than waiting a week or two.”
Lee’s Academic support office provides free tutoring for Lee students who fall behind or simply want help.
“Tutors are recommended by faculty members and are trained and carefully supervised as they deliver services,” according to Lee’s website.
“Go to professors’ office hours, use the time they have to talk about the class and any questions you may have,” suggested collegemagazine.com. “Email a professor to bring clarity when office hours don’t work or is to overwhelming.”
