This week we are sharing useful resources for new and returning college students and their professors. Undergraduate and Graduate students are returning to campuses across the country. Help us help them by sharing your knowledge.
- What did you wish you knew when you stepped foot on campus?
- Are you a non-traditional student? How did that affect your first semester?
- Were you a single parent when you began your graduate program? What resources would you share with someone in a similar situation?
