Student conduct –must be respectful. Discriminatory behavior should be reported and steps for doing so are in the syllabus. Disabilities –reasonable accommodations are available for any student with a learning disability; please contact the Access center who will then inform me of what accommodations are made. Counseling –is available to all students for free on campus, please visit the Access center. Safety and emergency notification –an emergency notification system is in place; update your contact preferences in MyWSU under Main menu, My profile, Update Emergency Info. Course schedule –please refer to this frequently; it reflects the topic for each class, assigned reading, due dates for assignments, and exams. Tips for Being Successful (adapted from ‘The A Game’ 1 ) 1. This is a challenging course –work hard to be successful; it will pay off. Most likely you will find this class more challenging than previous college courses you have taken. This may be your first business course and even your first course at a university. As you progress towards graduation your course work is designed to become more rigorous and demanding to better help prepare you for a profession. Many student that were successful in MIS250 immediately put these new abilities to work in a new job or career. Employers are not looking to hire someone who went to school for four years, instead they want thoughtful contributors that use critical thinking to apply the theories and techniques learned in school to solving business challenges. While gaining those traits may require more effort than you anticipate, according to hiring managers that advise our educational board, they are often the deciding factor in employment decisions. 2. Go to class (always!) There is no substitute for your own lecture notes. It is easy to find reasons to miss class (‘the weather is nice’, ‘I don’t feel well’, ‘I missed the bus’), but this is an investment in your future. Each week of class is costing you roughly $100 2 –if you factor in the interest on your future student loans, that number would be higher. On the other hand with a college education, you can earn more than 25,000/year in additional income than without, so each week of class can generate roughly $175 in incremental income, and over your life the value of each week of class is likely to be closer to $3500 3 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
