What to Expect
Making the transition to college is a lot easier if you know what to expect!
First Day of Class
It is very important that you attend the first day of class. You will meet your professor, who will outline the course and present you with a syllabus and other requirements and expectations.
HOLD ON TO THAT SYLLABUS! It is basically a contract between you and the professor. It lets you know what is expected from you and what you should expect from the professor.
When you go to class, bring:
- something to write with
- a notebook or other paper
- your textbook
- your class schedule
Check your WebMail
Most professors and college offices (including Financial Aid) use our campus email to send you announcements, course materials and other messages. Check in early and often. More information about WebMail is in the Connect with Technology area.
