Tip for succeeding academically at OBU: Make studying a priority and do whatever you can to make it easier on yourself. When you focus on your work, you get it done and you don’t give up.

Other than that, don’t feel like you’re alone. When you need help ask for help. The right kind of help, not cheating or taking shortcuts. You have teachers ready to take your questions, resources like tutoring to help you through problems, and friends that are studying and struggling just like you are, so take advantage of the opportunities you have because it’ll pay off in the long run.
