New year, new you … except maybe you’re still the old you, who got really overwhelmed and stressed out with all of the assignments and goals you set for yourself.
It’s OK to feel uncertain, but don’t panic — we have some words of wisdom from some of the wisest sources you’ll find (which is why you’ll see some #UHBauer faculty names on the list).
The Syllabus: More Than Just a Piece of Paper
“Read the syllabus as carefully as you would read something headed ‘Guide to Getting a Good Grade in This Class,’ because that’s what it is.”
Larry J. Sachnowitz Professor, Marketing & Entrepreneurship
“Try to become not a man of success, but try rather to become a man of value.”
Remember, Professors Are People
“Talk to us! Your professors are people, too, and want to hear from you. (Plus maybe we can help.)”
Clinical Assistant Professor, Decision & Information Sciences
You’re In Control
“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it’s unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so…If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there’s a chance you may contribute to making a better world. The choice is yours.”
Ask All The Questions
“Wisdom begins with wonder.”
Make Yourself Uncomfortable
“Welcome the uncomfortableness this semester (and life) might bring. It’s there to teach you something! Looking at it as an invitation to grow is much more fun than dreading it. Remember, life begins when you leave your comfort zone — enjoy the journey!”
Clinical Assistant Professor, Marketing & Entrepreneurship
