1 COLLEGE ETIQUETTE What to do and what not do

2 Four Hard Truths  Certain things are expected of you in college.  Instructors, advisors and staff judge you by your manners!  Good manners will take you far.  Knowing what is expected of you will keep you out of hot water.

3 The Don’t Commandments  Don’t come to class or an office with a bad attitude.  Don’t play with your phone or text in class.  Don’t be late for class or appointments.  Don’t come unprepared.  Don’t blurt out answers.  Don’t argue.  Don’t come to class smelling like alcohol.  Don’t come to class with your business hanging out.  Don’t lie.  Don’t cheat.  Don’t miss class habitually.

4 The Be Attitudes  Be positive.  Be prepared classes and appointments.  Be responsible.  Be on time!  Be quiet during lectures.  Be attentive.  Be honest.  Be a good communicator.  Be proactive with assignments and deadlines.  Be humble. Ask for help.

5 Communicating Your Professors  Read your syllabus or look at your D2L to find out the best way to communicate with your professor.  If you are having trouble in the class, see the professor during their designated office hours  If you are having trouble with a particular concept, don’t use the word “you”.  Don’t ask Mom and Dad to fight your battles for you.  Don’t wait till the last hour to ask for help or ask a question….you are not the ONLY student they work with.

6 Working in Groups  Establish how you will communicate with one another.  Show up on time.  Share the load!  Don’t monopolize the group.  Be tactful with criticism (i.e., don’t make another student feel dumb if you don’t like an idea. Instead, offer a polite suggestion.)  If someone in the group is not doing their part, talk it out with the group. You may need to talk with the professor.

7 Roommates  Don’t borrow your roommates things without asking.  Clean up after yourself.  If you have an early class, don’t keep hitting the snooze.  Share the chores.  Don’t have your significant partner over ALL the time.  Establish social hours.  If you are coming in late, be QUIET!  Don’t do anything illegal in the room. YOU BOTH CAN GET IN TROUBLE!  Always have your ID card and room key.  Don’t gossip about your roommate.
