College successincludes things like receiving good grades and improving yourself as a person .College success begins by the students determination, priorities ,takingadvantage of campus resources ,time management and having academic goals.In the article "Empowering Academic, College, And Career Success " byRandall S. Hansen , Randall S. Hansen gives students tips on how to succeed incollege "You should start each semester of college with certain academic goalsyou want to achieve -- perhaps a certain grade point average or achieving honorroll or dean's list"(Randall Hansen) Writing academic goals can help remind thestudent what needs to be achieved during the semester and keeping the studentmotivated . It might just feel good to scratch off what has been completed fromthe list of goals the student has and looking back to everything at the end of thesemester so the student can see what goals were achieved. Reminding yourselfof what has been achieved can help keeping the student determined and making

The student the nextday states they didn't have time to complete assignment since they had to work .
