Reaching Out to Professors: It's a Piece of Cake!

Why you should ask your professors for help when you need it.
Study Tip #4

Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

After my first year at college, I have learned that professors and Teaching Assistants aren’t as terrifying as I initially thought.

Rather than some distant, smarter-than-me-in-every-way person, my professors turned out to be extremely approachable and helpful.

When I needed an extension on a paper or guidance outside of office hours, my professors were more than accommodating.

I remember a particular assignment where I needed some advice on a paper, and my professor’s office hours coincided with another class of mine. Instead of leaving me to fend for myself, my professor hopped on the phone and gave me a call that night. I asked for help, and I GOT IT.

After getting over my fear of sending that slightly panic-stricken email, I reached out to my professors over and over again throughout the year and received nothing but support and positivity.

So, the latest tip in the series: ask for help when you need it. Build a relationship with your professor (you never know when you’ll need a letter of recommendation).

With the format of Unmudl allowing you to choose your own education style, it’s easier than ever to reach out to professors when you need support.
