Learning to love your learning will guarantee you success in college (and arguably in your life). While we all come to college for various reasons, there is a singular implied objective that we all share: earning a degree. The journey to the degree is not always on a clearly defined, straight path; I personally have had my share of challenges and discouragements, ranging from personal to financial to academic, along the way.

A new semester means a new slate of classes to get used to.  Here are a few tips for finding success in  your new classes.

1. Whether you're in your second semester or your eighth, read the syllabus, read the syllabus, read the syllabus!  Don't assume the policies for this professor as the same as for previous ones.

Why you should go GREEK!

The Sorority and Fraternity Community is a large and growing element on the Iowa State campus today with over 60 organizations recognized by the university. Approximately 14.6 percent of all undergraduate students are members of the Sorority and Fraternity community.
