    Student Tips for Success: Practice Opening A Lock

    1. Hold yourself accountable by doing your classwork and homework.  Grades Matter!

    2. Create a regular study space without noisy distractions. 

    • Is the television on?- Remember we can hear and see the television program.
    • Are you using your cell phone?- Remember we can see and hear you using FaceTime, texting, and looking down at your phone.
    • Set a timer and take short breaks
    • Fuel your mind with healthy snacks

    3. Engagement Starts With You

    • Participate
    • Be Prepared
    • Ask Questions
    • Go For Any Extra Help Sessions or Office Hours

     4. Stay organized

  • Mindfullness:

    1. Take a Mindful moment – Practice keeping your body still and quiet while listening to silence.
    2. Deep breathing – Utilize an inhale/exhale rhythm.  Bring yourself back into focus and no one else.
    3. Relaxation – Bring your energy to a nice, calm state. Use relaxing music or guided imagery.
