What to Do Now to Succeed at ICOHS College

It’s the beginning of a new semester, and if you’ve already started a few courses, you may be starting to get overwhelmed – especially now that social distancing has been put in place and the looming future of COVID-19 is upon us. There are things you can do to make sure you succeed this semester, and it’s more than simply showing up to each class on time.

  1. Set up a weekly schedule for class, homework, other jobs, and even your relaxing time. Highlight each area depending on its importance and area. Now add it into your phone calendar with reminders, print it out and put it on your fridge or bulletin board (or even on the front of your work binder). Staying organized on your time will ensure you don’t leave things for the last minute and increase your chances of being more focused and getting the grades you deserve.
  2. Introduce yourself to your professor, your classmates, and even the administrators of the college. We love meeting our students and so do the faculty. If you make people aware of you, you’re more likely to find out about opportunities and immerse yourself in the school culture. By staying separated, you could possibly lose motivation to succeed at your school work – and you won’t be getting the whole college experience.
  3. Join a study group. Once you’ve met a few of your classmates, join a study group. It can also be ideal to find a variety of personalities and strengths because each will bring their own positives to the group. By having someone to practice and study with, you’re socializing, gaining teamwork skills, and won’t get bored or distracted as easily.
  4. If you‘re starting to struggle, reach out for help early. If the admins need to track you down to discuss a failing grade, it might already be too late to bounce back. Stay on track with your grades and if you’re struggling with certain aspects, ask for clarification. You’ll be surprised at how simple something frustrating actually is. When you leave it, you’ll start to struggle with other functions of that same problem until you have no idea what’s going on. It can also lead to a loss of motivation to succeed as well. We’re here to help.
