What improvements can you implement for this semester? Tutoring? Academic Coaching? (http://lrc.rutgers.edu/) Going to professors’ office hours? Be flexible in making changes as you get more information through the semester. Your midterm grade should NOT be the first/only indication of your progress in a class.
Are you doing risky things? Taking too many credits? Procrastinating your studying? If you’re finding it hard to get motivated and do the things you know you should be doing, consider seeing a Counselor on campus to talk (http://rhscaps.rutgers.edu/services/counseling)
First year students need to do some exploring about majors/minors and can do so by taking classes in different areas. By the end of this semester, you should have some ideas about possible majors, but you needn’t be certain yet – enjoy the scenery and exploration of these first few semesters. Consider using some of the Career Assessments on the Career Services website (http://careerservices.rutgers.edu/) to focus on your major interests and options.
