Now listen to two students discussing the article.
Hey, did you read about this plan?
Yeah, and I think it's a really great idea.
Well, a lot of new students really need this.
I mean, it's not just about getting extra help with the course material . . . they'll probably also get information about things like taking notes, or the best way to study for exams . . .
Yeah, I barely even knew how to do those things when I first came here.
Neither did I. So these are things most students wind up having to learn on their own at first- that's why so many of them have a hard time.
And . . . it's probably good that they can work with somebody who has the same interests.
Right. That would be a real advantage . . . to get information about the classes you're gonna need to take from somebody who's already taken those classes.
And they could recommend professors . . . and tell you who the best advisors in the department are... things like that.
I see what you mean. So new students could get access to information about the program . . . from another student's point of view.
