DID YOU KNOW?

ADVICE FOR STUDENTS, FROM STUDENTS
As part of an end-of-semester survey, we ask Kirkwood students: “What would you do differently if you could start the semester over again?” Last year’s top 3 responses were:

 
• “Study more.”
• “Word harder.”
• “Manage my time better.”
 
So, make sure you’re putting in the effort every day and making the most of your time here at Kirkwood! Hit the books hard, get involved around campus, take advantage of student resources, and don’t ever be afraid to seek help when you need it.
