Hi there! This is where I keep some of my more "unconventional" advice for students — things that might shift how you think about college as an institution. Just let it bounce off you if it's not helpful. But you might find it useful to know that getting "good at school" is its own distinct skillset, and a learnable one.

Stuff to read

It is also worth looking at one of Cal Newport's books, based on interviews with straight-A students, for ideas about how to approach college strategically. As with any self-help-y book, get a free copy (e.g., from the library) and remember to skim all the anecdotes.
