Welcome to Week 1!
College is all about change, and this course is designed to help you adapt to the new learning environment, new challenges, and even the new way of attending college in an Internet environment. You will begin this week by looking into what essential qualities are necessary for success at college and in your career. You will then begin working on developing these qualities by completing the assignments for the week.
For those of you who think you have all the skills that this class might help you develop, challenge yourself to think more deeply about the topics. Go beyond what you've learned in the textbook and what you are asked to do for the assignments. Reflect deeply on what has worked well for you in your career or your life.

You will get out of your education what you put into it.
Have questions? Please post them in the Q & A Forum in the Discussion area. For faster response times, feel free to call or e-mail me.
