Classes begin on Monday, but it's not too late to get a head start. Check your Blackboard account to see which classes have been activated. Look over the syllabus and begin thinking about what you will be discussing in each course. Be sure you know where your classrooms are located -- and, most importantly, the closest parking if you are driving to campus. Give yourself some extra time for the first week by arriving early on campus. A good parking space is often very difficult to find, but if you are early, you stand a better chance. Be sure you know about the Baylor shuttle service.

I moved this feature up on the blog so that it's the first thing you see when you open the blog. Here is a place to ask technology questions such as "How do I add my syllabus to my blog?" Ask away if you have a question; if you have an answer, please jump in. This will be a great exercise in collegiality.
Do you ever find yourself up a tree when it comes to acing that important exam or nailing all the points on the research paper assignment? If so, this blog may be for you. It's a place to explore learning strategies, best practices in picking the perfect professor, and ways to play the academic game so that you end up scoring a university degree. You may also visit my Baylor blog for more information about the Paul L. Foster Success Center and Academic Support Programs.
