Connecting with Your Classmates

Establishing relationships with your peers can be beneficial in a variety of ways: forming study groups, discussing different interests in the field, recommending classes, and staying informed about opportunities and events on campus.

In class

 Connect with classmates face to face to explore course concepts further. Students who join study groups often get better grades and understand the material better.
