Comments Off on 3 Ways to Stand Out to Your Professors
One of the most important parts of college is making connections and developing relationships with the people you interact with, including your professors! I know how nerve wrecking it might be to approach them at first, but I promise you won’t regret it. All they want is to be there for you, and they can in so many ways. (i.e. assist you in coursework, write letters of recommendation, and help you grow your network). But before they can do all these things, they need to know who you are – and not just by your name being on the class roster. So here are 3 ways that I have used to try to stand out and create strong relationships with my professors:
- Introduce yourself at the beginning of the semester: Just like how it’s your first day of school, it’s their first day too! By showing up a little early to the first class of the semester, introducing yourself, and exchanging some small conversation, this opens the door to easily saying hello and goodbye during class (manners matter). This forces the professor to know who you are, along with how polite you are.
