Don’t Hesitate to Ask Your Professors for Help

It’s alright to ask for help. Sometimes it is the course content. Sometimes it is life getting in the way. While we may notice a drop in a grade on a quiz, or a poor performance on an exam, unless help is asked for, we may not recognize a student is in trouble until it is too late.
