9 of 10 NDSU students say academic success mainly depends on good study habits and hard work
What does this mean?
- It takes a wide range of study skills to be academically successful. These skills will also vary from student to student. What works for your friend, may not work for you, and that is okay!
- Study habits that worked in high school may not always work for you at a college level. Challenge yourself to find new techniques that work for you and visit with an advisor or academic counselor to find out more.
- Choose your mindset wisely. Prepare yourself with the idea that college will be hard, but that you have the tools, resources, and the capacity to succeed even when the going gets tough. If you are willing to do the work (e.g. tutoring, studying daily, attending class, etc.), you will get the grades that you deserve!
