Hello and welcome to my blog, Educating through Communicating: The Importance of Communication Between Professor and Student.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing my thoughts on the important role effective communication between students and faculty can play in a successful college experience. To begin, I would like to discuss the need for a college education.

            “A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.”

                                                                                                            -Horace Mann

Today, we live in an age where a college education is key to finding personal and professional success. When most of our parents were going through school, a college education was considered more of a privilege than it is today. In 2012, it’s almost a necessity. While still only 1% of the world’s population goes to college, it is becoming more and more difficult to find a job without a college degree in this economy. Those of us who have made the transition to college know that it isn’t always easy but when we finally walk across the stage at graduation, we not only celebrate our achievement, we begin to wonder if we can achieve even more.

Succeeding in college involves a great deal and it is much more than getting the perfect score on a test. For me, the professor-student relationship is one of the most important aspects of your education. In my next post, I will begin to tell you the reasons why. But for now, what do you think makes for a successful college experience?
