The fall semester starts this week; we've asked the experts in Daytona State's  School of Student Life Skills to provide a few tips on how students can make the most of their time in college. Here's what they had to say:
  1. Go to class - be on time.  Allow EXTRA time for on-campus parking.
  2. Get to know your professor - name, office location, office hours and preferred method of communication.
  3. Go to class prepared (textbook, notebook, pens, etc.).
  4. Find out about campus resources (Academic Support CenterCo-Curricular ActivitiesClubs and OrganizationsWriting CenterLibraryCounseling, etc.) that will benefit you throughout the semester.
  5. Get a planner (calendar, phone) that you will use. The back of the Student Handbook includes a very handy, dandy day planner.
  6. Read your syllabus and understand deadlines. A syllabus is not junk mail - it is a contract.
  7. Check your FalconMail and other college online services regularly.
  8. Try to sit toward front and center of class.
  9. Get the phone number or email address of at least one student in your class who can share notes in case you are absent.
  10. Get into your "I'm ready to learn" attitude.
