SHIPPENSBURG–With the end of the semester quickly approaching, students are focusing on term papers, final exams, and last-minute assignments. Luckily, they still have a chance to guarantee their academic success.
From Monday, November 13, to Friday, November 17, Housing and Resident Life sponsored Academic Check-In Week. This past week was an opportunity for students to meet with their professors outside of the classroom and have any questions answered about their progress so far this semester.
This year’s events included faculty house calls, lounge lectures, and a Thanksgiving Dinner with faculty in Reisner Hall.
Housing and Resident Life Program Assistant, Alex Honsberger, says that actively talking about your academics can make all the difference.
“Even if [students] aren’t doing well, getting them connected with the resources..so that way if they can’t turn around the semester, they are at least making moves to make next semester better,” says Honsberger.
Even though the withdrawal and registration deadlines have passed, students can ask questions using academic resources throughout the University. These resources include Library Services, the Tutor Center, and faculty Office Hours.
