For Parents: Tips for Success

What does faculty expect from students? Here's what we tell them:

  • Be curious and willing to shape your learning and inquiry.
  • Be active learners. Seek assistance from your faculty, your advisor, your mentors and the Learning Resource Center staff.
  • Ask questions!
  • Seek connections. Look for relationships between things.
  • Take risks. Be willing to think and see differently.
  • Challenge yourself and your classmates to learn from each other.
  • Bring your best self every day.
  • Take yourself seriously. We will.
  • Have fun. There is joy in creation and learning. Creating and critiquing are intense, but they are illuminating.
