Survival Strategies and Study Skills

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Being a full-time student is like having a full-time job – about 40 hours per week.
  2. Read the syllabus for each class every day – make sure you are keeping up daily.
  3. Get a good academic planner. Keep a careful daily plan with due dates, exam dates and to-do lists.
  4. Review and re-write your class notes after every class.
  5. Talk to your professor during office hours if you have ANY questions about course content.
  6. Seek out learning specialists and tutors at the Academic Enhancement Center4th Floor, Roosevelt Hall. 401-874-2367
  7. If you have any questions or problems – seek out your support counselor at Disability Services for Students – we can help you troubleshoot problems and find resources.
