A good working relationship between students and their professors can be an important factor in success.  But developing and maintaining that relationship takes work – on both sides.

We shared a lot in this episode from our personal experiences working with students every day.  Passing some of this along to your student may give them a good head start.

As part of our discussion, we talked about adjunct professors.  If you’d like to learn a little more about these part-time instructors, check out our article – Does It Matter Who’s Teaching Your College Student?

There’s an excellent book that may help your student talk to professors as well. We forgot to mention it in the podcast, but you might want to check out Ellen Bremen’s book, Say This Not That to Your Professor

Here’s another book that might help your student get started. Keith Rollag’s What to Do When You’re New: How to Be Comfortable, Confident, and Successful in New Situations.

Here are a few additional articles on this topic that will help you follow up on some of the things we discussed..
