The Leeds Advising office is trying to make it easier! This website is meant to help you learn how to be a successful student in the Leeds School of Business.

If you earn a low grade on a test, don't assume you will do better next time or that you can bring it up on the final exam. Don't wait to figure out what you are missing. Discuss the exam with your instructor/professor/TA as soon as possible. Review what you missed and assume this material will show up on another exam. Make sure you are very clear about how the curve and grading scale work for the course. Visit your academic advisor for assistance with finding the right resources. Get a tutor, form a study group, or attend a test preparation workshop.
"According to results from the National College Health Assessment of CU Boulder students, sleep, stress, and colds and flu are the most prevalent health issues that impact students’ academics. Other health issues affect fewer students but have very significant impacts on participation and success in school." Eating right, getting enough sleep and regular exercise are key to your academic performance. The Wardenburg Health Center is a great place for when you are feeling sick, but they have tons of great information on staying healthy. Take a look at the Health Promotion website for more information.
Learning with a disability is challenging. Part of academic success or being a "good student" is knowing your limits and when to ask for help. Many students who used services in high school feel like they want to make a change and do everything on their own in College. That sense of personal responsibility is commendable but PLEASE consider working with Disability Services. There are highly trained learning specialists who are dedicated to helping all students with learning differences be successful at CU Boulder.
