Richard J Light wrote a book called "Making the Most of College:
Students Speak their Minds" HUP $25
Students should try to get to know at least one faculty member each
semester. Even if they succeed only half the time, four years later
they will know eight people who can write a reference.
"Every day has three halves: morning afternoon and evening. And if I can
devote any one of these three blocks of time to getting my academic work
done, I consider that day a success." Light endorses this undergraduate's
idea of spending appreciable time in one block on study, and not
snacking on study.
Finally, students who get involved in extracurricular activities get
the opportunity to connect academics with their personal life.
