Former NAIS president Pat Bassett offers two pieces of advice for students’ heading off to university
1. What is most important is that you sit in the front row, especially in larger lecture hall classrooms. That and going up to talk to your professor after class are the best ways you can develop a relationship with your instructor. Understand that that relationship is vital when it comes to finding possible mentors and internships.
2. Develop the habit of working in study groups. Be the one to create a study group, so you get into the habit of learning from one another.
