“My favorite thing about BW is not only the quality of the professors, but the kindness and compassion they show towards each and every student. BW feels more like a home rather than just a college.”
- Erin O’Donnell, Exercise Science & Pre-Physical Therapy
Here are four tips to help you succeed:
Know when your classes meet. That sounds obvious, but be alert: depending on the term, Saturday classes often start the weekend before the regular term. Carefully review your course schedule and the Academic Calendar. The Academic Calendar includes other important dates, such as the last day you can drop a course.
Take advantage of resources. BW offers numerous resources for students. Check out the links on the right. We especially recommend that adult students tap into the resources of the Learning Center and Career Services.
Demonstrate academic integrity. Most people know that when you write a paper, you cannot just take text from a source word for word without giving credit. Did you know that you also need to cite your source when you paraphrase or summarize another's ideas using your own words? Please be aware of BW's Academic Honesty Policy and, if you want help, utilize the Writing Lab or the Online Writing Lab available through the Learning Center.
Ask for help. The Adult & Continuing Education office stands ready to assist you. We can answer questions, make referrals, advocate for adult students, and give you that word of encouragement when you need it. Please contact us at 440-826-2121 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Your success is our success!
