A problem for college students is that not enough of them utilize all of the campus academic resources that are readily available to them. I use these resources myself and they are very beneficial to my learning as a college student.

It is a good idea to use these campus academic resources because you get one-on-one learning with a tutor. That can help students because you can structure how you want it to go, meaning if there’s something you feel like you have a good grasp on then you don’t need to go over it. On the other hand, if there’s something that you feel like you need more instruction on, then you can get it from a tutor. With this, the tutors are well-qualified to help as they have gone through courses like the ones you are taking and can give you some tips on what they did for learning, and maybe it’ll help you too.

You are responsible for your learning and are paying tuition money. In order to make it money well spent, you should be doing everything in your power to succeed and getting help from the campus resources if you feel that you need it. The tutoring is part of your tuition so you don’t have to pay anything extra for it; therefore because of this, if you feel you need it, then use it. The challenge in all this is to get students that don’t take that extra step to go to these resources to go. The solution is if you feel like you need the academic resources and aren’t using them, then use them.

Overall, I feel it is a good idea to use the resources.
