You'll need to ask for help at times while you're in college. Whether you need a resource of some sort, a referral for more specialized help, need to talk out a personal or academic issue or need something else from someone, go ahead and ask. No one will expect you to have all of the answers. Ask your instructors, other campus personnel, other students and read descriptions of what's available on your campus. You'll be in college to learn and asking questions is the first step. Become familiar with all of the available student services on your campus, as well as the various academic departments. the library, financial aid office, administrative functions and other campus resources available to you. Knowing where to find the help you need will save you a lot of frustration later on, and every student needs help now and again.
What a great tip for students. So many come to campuses with the "teaching" that asking for help is a weakness.
Our culture tells us that asking is a weakness and we must one-by-one create a new culture that says asking is a strength!
