Video: What I Wish I Knew
Posted on September 25, 2012

We’ve all had those moments – moments during which we think “I wish I had known that.” The thought usually pops into our head after we learn about a web site, office, publication or person that could have helped us on a complicated project, answered a long-held question, or given us information that would have been useful months ago.
Sometimes the information we needed was within reach all along, but we just didn’t realize it. Sometimes, we didn’t even know it was available. Sometimes, we didn’t know how to search or ask for that help. And, sometimes, we were told about a resource but just didn’t think we’d actually need to use it (so we forgot it).
When it comes to college, we know there are a lot of services, help and information that our students often wish they had known more about sooner, and that’s one of the reasons our QEP, Tyler Connections: Making the First Year Count, will focus on making sure first-year students know about the resources that can help them succeed. During our recent Hello, JTCC events, we asked our current students to tell us what they wish they had known when they first started taking classes at Tyler. As you can see in this video, they gave us some great ideas.
