Dean’s Commentary


From Strategy 1, College Smart, page 9

Andrea is like too many students who think that they can approach college work casually with an “It’ll-all-work-out” attitude. Nothing happens that way. Andrea needed very practical and specific advice on how to become a College Smart Student. In the end, it all worked out for her. She took control, set goals for herself, and felt great for her efforts.

Remember the learning mountain? Always aim for the top. As you move higher, the work gets harder. You need to meet each challenge by studying not only more, but studying better. That’s exactly why your ability to learn has to grow from class to class and year to year. Always be asking yourself, “How can I be a better student?” There’s always more to learn, and that’s what all my Strategies are about.
