How to Make it Through Those Pesky GenEd College Classes

College is an amazing place. You meet lifelong friends and get to learn so much from people who have actually worked in your desired field. From journalism classes to business plans, the opportunities for a budding professional are practically endless. College students truly enjoy taking classes that pertain to their major because they are interested in the material. What happens, however, when a Journalism major is required to take a general education geology class? Utter disaster, unless you follow these four steps.

1) Use your TA

Most general education classes are big (depending on the size of your college), but many of them will have a Teaching Assistant, who grades homework and assists the professor. Take the time to email your TA if you’re struggling, and ask for extra help. Chances are he/she would be glad to meet with you, and eventually you’ll understand the material a lot better.

2) Make friends in your classes

Going through a tough class alone can be hard. Befriend the person sitting next to you. Get their phone number so you can text if you have a question about the material. Group studying can also be beneficial, so be sure to be friendly in class.

3) Don’t blow off class

Nothing’s worse than skipping a class when you’re already behind. If you’re frustrated and feel like going to class is pointless, don’t give up. Continue to go to class and ask your professor questions. Take detailed notes and continue to review. The more effort you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it.

4) Actually read the given material

The best thing you can do in a class that you’re having trouble in is to read the information. Chances are you’re not going to have any previous knowledge from your major about geology; so completing the given reading is essential to your success. Above all, make the best of your experience. Who knows? Maybe one day you’ll actually become a geology major (possible, but most definitely not plausible).
