Imagine this scenario…
Your College Success professor has assigned a presentation and your topic is “utilizing support services on campus.” As you gather information, you have questions about how to organize your presentation and whether or not you are following the instructions correctly. Unfortunately, your class doesn’t meet again until next week and you want to finish your outline this weekend.
Question: What do you do?
Answer: Meet with your professor during office hours!
Earlier this semester when your professors extended an invitation for you and your classmates to meet during office hours, they weren’t kidding! Your professors set aside this time every week so that you can ask questions about homework, get feedback on assignments, or get information that you may have missed during a lecture.
Unfortunately, many students pass up the opportunity to meet with their professors because they are embarrassed about discussing their progress, think that their professors are too busy, or are too nervous to ask questions. But, in reality, your professors are there to help you succeed. They want you to ask questions so that you understand the topics that are discussed in your classes.
