Important Tips for Success
Attend all classes! If you are too ill to attend class, notify your professor and, if appropriate, go to Bucknell Student Health.
Manage your time: You should spend approximately 40 hours each week studying outside of class time, so use the time between classes wisely.
Find a good place to study: A quiet place, free from distractions (including your electronics!), is necessary for concentration. Consider the library, open classrooms, and study lounges.
Seek out those who can help - a faculty member, an adviser, an academic associate deanor a campus life resource.We'll support you! Go to office hours with faculty or make an appointment with associate deans or staff members. We want you to succeed.

Professional staff and peer tutors are available to work with writers of all skill levels.
