Student Success Strategies
Topics covered by this workshop included:
The workshop focused on avoiding practices that put a student's future in danger. Students learned of the damage to their credibility if they are accused of such a thing as plagiarism and got stories of the wonderful feeling we get and the knowledge we acquire after we have conducted an immense amount of research on any given topic. The workshop stressed that the amount of work will only get harder and persuade students that it is for their benefit that they do their work by avoiding illegal and lazy shortcuts. It was pointed out that plagiarism is the antithesis to knowledge-acquisition, integrity, and personal development.
The workshop focused be on the importance of getting to know the faculty in the departments we are in and the departments we would like to transfer to. Students got tips on how to find contact information using the web, how to compose letters of inquiry, and how to get their names into the minds of faculty at schools they would like to one day attend. Students also received tips on how to approach their professors during office hours to maximize their gains from a service they rarely seem to use.
The workshop dealt with the various elements that comprise a professional student life. Students will hopefully realize that hardly any aspect of their academic lives exists in a vacuum by itself, and that they need to know the importance of each section of their academic environment to succeed.
