The class sizes are relatively small so you can really get to know your instructors. And I can't say enough about some of the instructors I've had so far... I am in an Applied Drug Therapy course this semester that I LOVE; I actually look forward to logging onto Angel to listen to the instructor's lectures.
Getting the opportunity to teach in the School of Nursing's Clinical Skills Lab for the past few semesters has been a wonderful experience for me. I love, love, love working with the new nursing students!
I really like to study upstairs at Dykes. It is generally pretty quiet, and the librarians are always very helpful.
Carefully structure your time (especially if you work and/or have a family) and be sure to check your email frequently!
Get familiar with the myKUMC tab on the university homepage. There are several software downloads available at a discounted rate to students. Also get familiar with the library website. As a student you have access to a number of different journals, resources, etc. The librarians are always happy to help.
Read the street signs. There are a few streets near campus that don't require a permit or require you to move your car within two hours. Two-hour parking means two-hour parking. You will be ticketed, trust me.
