ThruYOU: I M New
came away from her first chemistry lecture in a glow. In one
hour she found out that everything was made up of atoms which
were in continual motion. She grasped the idea that nothing was
ever lost or destroyed. Even if something was burned up or
rotted away, it did not disappear from the face of the earth; it
changed into something else - gases, liquids, and powders.
Everything, decided Francie after that first lecture, was
vibrant with life and there was no death in chemistry. She was

College Survival Skills
No matter how successful a student you were, experience has shown that the learning skills used in high school will not be sufficient to guarantee success in college. You must adjust your study habits appropriately to meet this challenge.
Consider the ways in which college coursework differs from high school:
Ø Material is presented more rapidly and in larger quantities.
Ø All assignments typically count toward the final grade.
Ø Keeping up with previous material is essential to understanding new topics.
Considerable out-of-class time investments are required to
effectively learn course material
Ø Critical thinking is more important than rote memorization.
Ø Students are expected not only to understand the specific examples given in class, but also to apply their knowledge broadly.
Ø Neither professors nor parents are “looking over your shoulder” to ensure that necessary coursework gets done on time.
Ø Help is available, but you must take the initiative to seek it out.
