FIRST-YEAR COLLEGE SURVIVAL TIPS
REMEMBER: COLLEGE IS NOT HIGH SCHOOL
Instructors care about you at MCC, but they will not do the work for you. You
are responsible for reading and completing assignments on time.
No one knows better than you do what you want out of life. Set short-term and
long-term goals. Your goals may change, but they will continually motivate
Go to class—no excuses. What you learn from instructors and fellow
students will be needed on quizzes and tests.
KNOW YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Introduce yourself to your instructor. Ask questions. Instructors are there
CONSULT YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR, BUT BE YOUR OWN EXPERT
Your academic advisor is your best resource to plan your academic
career; however, be your own expert to make sure everything goes as
ASK FOR HELP
Academic Resource Centers and tutors are just two of the resources MCC has to
offer. Consult Student Services for information and hours at your campus.
LEARN FROM MISTAKES
If you received an A in a class, you earned it! If you receive an F in a
class, you earned that also. If you did not do well, think about what
happened. Did you miss too many classes? Did you forget to turn in
assignments? Learn from your mistakes.
