First time college student? Check out these success tips from other students

 Even though after the first and second week of college it would be stressful with homework everyday but don't get overwhelmed about it you will get through this one day at a time trust me it will get better soon we you get used to the routine of things.

·     Julie Carter-Grubbs Utilize a planner to keep track of tasks and due dates for each class. This helps stay on track and also keeps everything down to manageable bites to keep from getting overwhelmed.

Denise Helmers Brown Julie Carter-Grubbs I was going to suggest this also. With all online classes this semester I started doing this; it has helped tremendously!

Ashley Collier Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Stay on top of your assignments. Most importantly, try your hardest!

Dawn Moore For those coming back at an older age, don’t be discouraged or feel intimidated. I have 8 children and returned 2 years ago and was terrified!!! Don’t be! There are so many others just like us! And we are so determined at this age and know we want to succeed. You got this!!

Ryan Cooper Talk to your instructors outside of class! They want you to do well in their class and they will help you if you have questions about assignments or clarification about content for upcoming tests. Even instructors who can be a little intimidating in the classroom tend to be much more relaxed in a one-on-one chat.

Michele Adelman Niec Use the Classlist in eLearn to find study partners, paper reviewers, etc. Everyone in your class is listed there and you can email them directly.

Beth Christy Webb Thoman I am a returning non traditional student, and in the past I would use this motivating study trick. When you aren't into studying and you know you need to, make yourself for five minutes. Normally after that 5 minutes most likely you will be into it and not want to stop.

Mikayla Milton Take a deep breath when you are feeling overwhelmed. Always keep a planner for your assignments. And don’t over stress about school

Vol State has plenty of free academic support available to all students, including online tutoring. Visit this web page for details.
