Making the Most of Your KSU Experience

Both inside and outside the classroom, and throughout the local and global community, there are myriad learning opportunities to help you become the best and most successful person you strive to be!

Success in higher education is so much more than good grades. Invest your time wisely to balance your academic responsibilities with co-curricular growth and leadership opportunities. Information about KSU's student organizations and activities is available online at:

The possibilities are endless! Whether you become involved in existing opportunities or create new ones for yourself and others, KSU is committed to diverse and engaging experiences that improve the lives of our students and the communities they serve.

Some tips for success:

  • Go to every class. Just being there gives you an advantage over not being there. Even if attendance is not required, be present and participate fully.
  • Meet new people. Seek others from different backgrounds and perspectives to broaden your viewpoint and network.
  • Create study teams. Research shows we learn better when engaging deeply with others, and a great way to assess your own understanding is to share it with others.
  • Invest time in yourself. Continuously explore who you are, who you have been, and who you are becoming academically, socially, spiritually, and physically.
  • Invest in others. Whether a simple act of kindness like providing a meal for a hungry peer who is struggling or serving in your community, everyone has something valuable to share.
  • Create strong personal management systems to maximize your current and future success. Whether focusing on time management, financial management, or health and wellness management, creating good habits that compliment your learning and personality styles allows you to find your unique path to success.
