If you’re taking online classes then there is good reason why you may not know about all the amazing resources your campus has to offer.
While you may think the main campus is only there for the poor students who have offline classes or the nerds who love to soak up the wealth of knowledge in the library it isn’t.
I was amazed by how much my university had to offer when one of my professors made it mandatory for us to get our papers checked by the university writing center.
YOU MEAN THERE IS SOMEONE WHO IS WILLING TO CHECK MY PAPER BEFORE I TURN IT IN?!?
YES! There is. Crazy, right?
Below I have listed the best and most common resources on college campuses. Enjoy! =)
I wrote the Career Center first because it is my favorite resource! I first went because I had all this experience but I wasn’t getting hired for any positions so finally I decided to step into this gorgeous new building on campus known as the career center.
The brilliant career consultant told me I wasn’t getting hired because I wasn’t conveying all of my experience correctly on my resume. Now, I have a beautiful resume and a job.
I’m telling you, go here! It’s awesome.
The gym isn’t only a great place to keep off that “freshman 15” it’s also a great place to meet people, especially good looking members of the opposite sex.
If you’re lucky then you’ll have a free fitness program like my university offered. It was an eight-week program for dedicated students looking to tone up or lose weight. The program offered a free nutritionist and trainer.
Inquire about programs like this at your school’s fitness center.
The writing center is a fabulous place to go before you have to turn in a big assignment. The tutor’s here are brilliant. It’s a free service, and it almost guarantees you a great grade.
Most importantly, it gets reported to your professor who may just give you an ‘A’ for effort.
I would have never known about this place if it wasn’t for my math professor requiring that students attend at least three hours per week. At first, I was really distraught about the number of hours, but I quickly got excited about it once I realized I had math whizzes doing my homework for me… for free.
