Advice and Strategies for First-year College Success

Montclair State University Professor Rob Gilbert’s strategies for success in college are highlighted in a column in "The Record."

“Study smart. College is a marathon, not a sprint. Study two to three hours every day, not all night before an exam or when a project is due,” advises Montclair State University Professor Rob Gilbert in a column by Pat Restiano in the August 7 online edition of The Record.

Although aimed primarily at first-year college students, Gilbert’s advice can help students at any stage in their college careers. “I recommend that all high school and college students read [Gilbert’s] tips,” says Restaino in the column. “Follow it and you can’t fail.”
