From a Professor’s Perspective: Advice for College Students

As another school year kicks off, college students are snapped back into the reality of hours of classes, followed by hours of studying, followed by hours of homework (repeat until graduation).

Luckily, there is plenty of august advice floating around for students new and old. Below is some offered from Katherine Sharp Landdeck, Ph.D., who is an Associate Professor of History at Texas Woman’s University:

Landdeck includes much more in a special article she wrote for the Huffington Post, which you can continue reading here.
