The spring semester is in full swing! With the first round of midterms coming up for many (and some having already taken that first test), your peer liaisons want to remind you that we are here for you! Whether you want advice about a class, finding a major, study techniques, or just need to vent, we’ve got your back.
In the meantime, don’t forget about these awesome resources available to you right here on campus:
Most importantly, be kind to yourself. You can do it! And spring break is right around the corner….
We asked our peer liaisons which professors have had a positive impact on them since they came to UD. Devon chose Marc Lodyga in the BHAN department because she “loves how passionate he is about the topic of health education.” Shantelle told us that Kristin Wiens “always looks out for all of her students and makes learning about nutrition interesting.”
“Get to know your advisor. Don’t just make an appointment if you have a problem. Even if you feel like you have things under control, stop in and talk to her. My advisor is really helpful with a lot more things than just picking classes.” – Freshman UST student
“Everyone who goes to college should know why they’re doing it. Is it what your parents expect? Are you following your sister’s footsteps? Do you think it will help you get a better job? I went to a workshop on developing a resume and cover letter, and the presenter said, “What is your why?” and that stuck with me. What is your purpose?” – Sophomore Political Science major
“Adjusting to the large classes was difficult for me, so I found friends in those classes to study with, which helped me a lot.”
“The most difficult part for me was getting used to the structure of college because the classes aren’t back-to-back every day like in high school. I had to learn how to use the time between classes for assignments, and take time to relax.”
“The hardest part of coming to college for me was being away from home. I got super involved with campus events to keep busy in a positive way, and I managed my time to allow for staying in contact with my family.”
