What I love most about AMP: My favorite thing about AMP is the many opportunities to meet so many different Northwestern students. It's a pleasure to get to know students with such a broad set of interests, and to see how each individual approaches the class material. It's also a very satisfying group to be a part of; I can share advice about courses, professors, and subjects that might complement their goals and interests. Overall, it's just a great experience.
My advice on succeeding academically: Go to office hours. For some reason, a lot of people still don't do it. Professors here really care about helping their students figure out the material, but if you need help, you do need to be proactive. It's also a good idea to drop in if you have something that you're curious about. Faculty are full of subject knowledge and experience, and students should take advantage of that.
The best thing about Northwestern, in my opinion: Definitely the million-and-one clubs we have. There are so many different things to get involved in, and the people are all amazing. Get out of your comfort zone a little, and try something new! It might be the start of something awesome. But, don't overdo it! Be sure to save time for your studies.
My advice on getting the most out of AMP: First, have a quick look over the course materials before you come to session. If you have some idea about what parts of the course are giving you trouble, it makes it so much easier for us to help you figure things out. Second, don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions, regardless of how trivial you might think they are.
