The greatest obstacle for college students is to need some support but not be able to get it. If you find yourself in that position, here are some suggestions.

  • Set up a support system for yourself
    • Don't try to go it alone. Ask some friends to be your support team. Explain to them what you need. Ask for their suggestions and ask them to follow up with you. You can return the favor some day.
  • Take the initiative
    • There are many people who are interested in helping both at your school and nationally but they rarely have the time to intiate a contact with you. You contact them!
  • Be persistent
    • If you've tried asking a resource person for help and they haven't responded, please realize that these people are often overworked. Get back to them. Ask when they might be able to meet with you. Let them know you need help and have had trouble getting in touch with them. If you feel a little uncomfortable with this, ask your support team or a trusted teacher or advisor to help you.
  • Find out who the advisors and career counselors are at your school.
    • They can't go out of their way to contact you but they will be happy to talk with you if you can find them. They ARE there. You can also make appointments to talk with professors in your department or other departments.
  • Plan in advance
    • Take some planning time before a semester starts to anticipate what kind of help you might need. Consider what you would like to be doing even one and two years into the future and what kind of support you'll need to accomplish those goals.
  • Be creative
    • Don't just get by in your school endeavors. Look for support that will help you get more out of your classwork, that will help you tailor your undergraduate work to your personal needs and interests and that will help you move forward on your career path in a way that is interesting and exciting to you.

Finally, I want to acknowledge the many people who have put together the sites listed and linked to below. These resources are predominantly their work, not mine. They haven't done this for money or even fame. They've gone out of their way to share their information and to help us all out. Thank them if you ever get a chance.

Best wishes to you. If you are ever stuck, please feel free to contact me. Now here are your links.
