The start of the 2019-20 academic year is an exciting time at Broward College. As students enjoyed their final days of summer break,  faculty started the year with the annual Faculty Welcome Back on August 15. This year under the theme – ‘What is my why?’ faculty had the opportunity to hear stories of student success and shared what motivates them to teach.

We spoke to a few of our passionate and dedicated faculty members about how students can excel in the classroom.

Here are a few tips they shared.

  • Time management skills are key to a successful semester
  • Come to class with an open mind
  • Remember to take advantage of your free student resources
  • Don’t get discouraged by a difficult course or a bad grade, keep going
  • The work you do outside of the classroom is what counts most towards your grade
  • Don’t just come to class, enjoy college life with student life activities, shows and exhibits
  • Remember to have fun!
