As we move forward with the next phase of Operation Study, we would like to share these Tips for Staff and Faculty to Engage with Students. This includes sample questions you may want to ask students as a way to start conversations about their academic progress in an effort to let them know the entire campus community is concerned about their success.

Tips for Staff and Faculty to Engage with Students
Whenever you have the opportunity to interact with students, consider asking some of the following questions so students know the entire campus community is concerned about their academic success.
• How is the semester going for you?
• Have you studied yet today?
• What classes did you have today? How were they?
• What is your major? How did you select it?
• About how many hours do you actually study each week?
• Have you visited any of your professors during office hours?
• Remember to review your notes within 24 hours of each class lecture.
• Remember you should start studying for exams several days to a week in advance.
• Remember you should study two hours for every one hour of class time.
• When is your next test? Did you start studying for it yet?
• How were your mid-point (midterm) grades?
• How is that course for you? (when you see a student with a textbook)
• Are you working on any papers?
• Do you need some help with any of your classes?
• Remember the Center for Academic Success is available for tutoring and workshops.
• Did you know we have a Writer’s Studio on campus? (Arts & Sciences G-224)
• Have you attended any study sessions or workshops to earn StudyBucks?
• Have you created a final exam study schedule yet? (a week or two before finals)
