Dear prospective student.
Hello! My name is Jessica. I am a fairly new student with the University of Phoenix and to be honest with you, I was very terrified when I was first accepted to the school because I was so afraid that I could not do it. I am a single mom who works full time. All I could think about was how am I going to be able to handle school, work, and a toddler. At times, yes it was stressful only because I did not have to right mindset or skills that I needed to be a successful student until now. The school actually prepares you for this! I learned more over the course of seven weeks than I did in an eighteen week class in high school.

You will get a verity of reading and study techniques that you may or may not have known about that you can utilize through your student career. One on my favorite topics we review was the SMART goals which will also help you out more than you will realize at first. Another important skill that you will master is time management. You may think why do I need time management when I am doing on online class but I promise you that you will. All of those thing that I mentioned above will also help you not only in your academic life but also in your personal and professional life.
The student recourses that you will learn all about in the first week are extremely helpful. They have items to help with everything including a plagiarism checker! You also will have a wonderful support system with your professor, academic advisor, and your financial advisor. They are all there for you each step of the way on your journey. However, effective communication is key. The University if full of very understanding staff that will help you in any way possible during your enrollment. You just have to make sure you communicate properly with them, which you will learn all about proper communication during the first class.
I have enjoyed my first seven weeks with the University of Phoenix . I have learned not only good student skill practices but also a lot of practices that will help me in my every day professional and personal life. It is a honor to say that I am a part of this school and I hope that you make the decision to join as well. I know it has been one of the best life choices I have ever made.
