Among the many advice articles on college life, here is one that I have found to be interesting (probably because its number one advice
is something about us faculty folks ;-).
Your assignment for this week is to read this article, originally from New York Times (it is just 1500 words), and post a comment on the blog
(as a comment to this post). Your comment should be at least 150words--but can be longer if you want. You can focus on which of the suggestions
the article provide were most surprising/helpful etc for you. You can also add other suggestions.
We might discuss your comments bit in the beginning of next class.
