One thought on “Academic Interests

  1. Faculty could help to guide students and ease the titsniaron by informing students of what is expected of them. There should also be more workshops about how to score in University, instead of just peer tutoring and personal help. Not many students would want to invest time in seeking additional academic help which deprives them of the time they could be using to study. Perhaps some tips on websites would be helpful.
