Feeling Left Out: Relating to Your Instructors
Your instructors can be tremendous resources for you not only in class but outside of class as well. Instructors can write letters of recommendation for you, provide contacts for summer jobs, assist you in preparing for graduate school, provide information about majors and careers, help you find internships, and more.
Perhaps the easiest way to relate to your instructors outside of class is to take advantage of your instructors' office hours to ask questions, discuss assignments and lecture material, seek advice, and show a personal interest in the course material.
Sometimes getting to class early and staying after class will give you other chances to talk informally with your instructors. Check with your instructors to be sure they don't mind talking with students before or after class.
