Commit to Completion
Commit to completing your college degree or certificate. You can show your resolve by signing a Commit to Completion banner today on the Gallatin campus from 11am-2pm outside of the Thigpen Library. It only takes a moment or two. We'll post the banner in the cafeteria so you can remind yourself throughout the school year.
We know college can be tough. Here are just a few ideas to help you do well in your classes:
-Attend all of your class meetings. If you skip even one class you will get behind. This isn't high school and there is a different work expectation here.
-Talk to your instructor if you don't understand something or if you need help. They're not here to give you extensions or allow you to get out of work. They are here to help you learn and succeed. Don't be embarrassed about not understanding something....that's why you're here and that's why we're here.
-Get extra help. We have a number of free academic support services available to all students. Those services will really help you as the semester piles up with assignments and papers. We've collected the tutoring services in one list that we call the "College Success Zone." You can view the list of free services here.
