First Paragraph

It seems to me that an increasingly (and disturbingly) large number of our students, especially in fall classes, have almost no idea of how to go about tackling the academic realities of college. A couple of years ago, I put together a handout that has become a standard first-day gift for all students in our department. Your students might find it useful as well.
