"Simple College Freshman Guide to Good Grades"

Wouldn't it be great if there were one simple and easy way to make or improve fres
Hman year grades. There is.

The simplest thing a freshman can do to make good grades.....go to class! Through the years almost all freshmen who have come to me with grade problems were skipping classes. Many professors will totally lay it out in front of the student, if they are there. One professor friend did a study of all the freshmen in the Biology classes. Grades were almost exactly tied to the number of cuts.

Some professors have told me that if a student has a borderline grade....particularly the D and F borderline, they take into consideration whether they have been there all the time. A Math Professor told me that he will always bump them up a few points to get over the hump if......they have been there. He said the number of absences tells him, if they care or not.

There is a secret for better grades for freshmen....go to class....even at 8:00 a.m.
