DEVELOP A PLAN

"The thing that really helps me is keeping track of my Pantherlink e-mail because that way I knew everything that was going on in my classes, and using the calendar let me know what I was doing every day! I also used PAWS so that I knew what classes I needed to take, and D2L helped me keep up with my current classes in order to maintain my grades through the semester. I had a plan for my school year and with these resources I was the most successful!" - Serafina Payne

"Make sure you are checking your D2L, PAWS and Pantherlink e-mail. I cannot stress it enough how much you need to be checking them on a daily basis.  There is a ton of needed information that is given to you through these sites.  Going on D2L, PAWS, and Pantherlink is the way I get my information for class and what's going on around campus. If I'm not checking them at least 3 times a day, Pantherlink even more, I am completely unaware.  CHECK THEM!" - Devon Timblin

Check your PAWS, D2L and email accounts daily
