A last-minute reminder of proper MLA format (PDF).
Two pages. What do you know now that you wish you had known when you arrived at SHU? I will remove your name, and share your comments with the freshman whom I teach next year. If you like, I encourage you to post this assignment on your weblog (but please give me a printout anyway).
I. Lessons Learned
Reflect on the year you have just spent as a freshman in college.
A) What are the three most important lessons you learned about making the adjustment from high school to college?
B) What are the three most important lessons you learned about thinking and writing at the college level?
C) What are the three most important lessons you learned about yourself?
II. Tips and Suggestions
Write a bulleted list of tips and suggestions that you feel next year's incoming freshmen should know.
III. Personal Reflection
Looking back at your academic career so far, and looking ahead to where you want to be in the future, assess where you are at present. What are your greatest academic accomplishments, and what are your most important goals?
