Five People Essential to Your Educational Success

Professor Simon Haslett speaking at a graduation ceremony

It's very difficult to accomplish anything in life without the help of others. Going to college can be one of the most exciting and rewarding times in your life; it can also be one of the most challenging. If you aren't willing to accept the help of others while you're in school, you might as well not enroll. Here are five people that are essential to the success of your education:

1. Academic Counselor

Your academic counselor will be a tremendous amount of help to you over the course of your college career. This person can help you choose courses, drop classes from and add classes to your schedule, and help you design a schedule that works best for your schedule. If you're having trouble in class, your counselor can be your first resource in locating the proper assistance.

2. Professors

Professors do much more than teach. Professors can act as mentors, introduce you to people that matter and even provide assistance when you struggle. Get to know your professors, become active in the classroom and seek their assistance when you need it. You'll be surprised at just how much help your professors can be in your educational success if you simply take the time to discover what they can do for you.

3. Financial Aid

Unless you are independently wealthy, you'll need to rely on financial aid to make it through to graduation. The financial aid office at your school can be an invaluable source of information when it comes to funding your tuition. The professionals in the financial aid office can point you in the direction of government assistance, sources of funding directly available from the school, private scholarships and even student loans.

4. Family

You won't get very far in school if you don't have the support of your family. You may need your parents to watch the kids for a weekend, your partner to give you some alone time or your kids to help you study for an exam. There are dozens of ways that your family can help you make it through school. Remember that your family wants you to succeed; don't be shy about asking for their help when you need it.

5. Career Counselor

Do you know who you should speak to if you start second-guessing your choice of major? Aside from your academic counselor, a career counselor can be a great source of help. By visiting a career counselor, you can discover a major that may be more suited to your talents and desires, preventing you from wasting time on the wrong course of study. Make sure that you don't wait until the day before graduation to make an appointment with the career counseling office at your school.

There are a variety of people who will be instrumental in your success as a college student. The five listed above are just the tip of the iceberg. No matter whose assistance you choose to seek, make sure that you don't try to get through college on your own; everyone needs help now and again.

GOOD Yes No   Educators do considerably more than instruct. Teachers can go about as coaches, acquaint you with individuals that matter and even give help when you battle. Become more acquainted with your teachers, end up noticeably dynamic in the classroom and look for their help when you require it. You'll be shocked at exactly how much help your educators can be in your instructive achievement on the off chance that you basically set aside the opportunity to find what they can accomplish for you.
