  • Principles of Success | The Warrior
    can exceed your own expectations Studies show that three key practices lead to student success and all three of these practices are within your control First you must believe in yourself No matter what successes or failures you have experienced in the past the foundation for your future rests in a belief in yourself So start this fall with a positive attitude about yourself and your studies Second hard work matters This can be tricky When you are juggling a job family friends and other responsibilities there are just not enough hours in the day With everything going on in your life make sure you can carve out a set time in your schedule to get to your studies Perhaps it s after you put your kids to bed or on your lunch break at work or maybe you are an early riser and can hit the books before breakfast It doesn t matter when it just matters that you have a dedicated time to work on your studies The third key practice is to engage with your academic community This simply means that you build strong relationships with the faculty and staff This can be a bit challenging in the online environment but this is something we specialize in at Waldorf College We want to know you not just as students but as unique individuals We enjoy talking to you on the phone or answering a text The more engaged we become as an academic community the more learning will take place and the greater success you will enjoy So there you have it believe work hard and engage The three keys to your success Dr Alsop has served as Waldorf s president since 2011 but his first love remains being in the classroom and helping students succeed Author
