The Academics offered at my school is a good selection. However, it is not as diverse as most schools because most students attend Ivy Tech to achieve their general studies and then transfer to another college that is better suited for them and their major of interest. I have had very great professors that were thorough with their material and syllabus, and elaborated on subjects students misunderstood, and also made themselves available during their office hours and via e-mail. Recently, I picked up a paper that had ideas of how to better a students study habits. I followed the advise listed and it not only improved my grades but also the amount of material I learned and retained. In my philosophy class, me and a couple of other girls organized a study group; in which each of us completed a certain task (vocabulary cards, outlines, etc) and it helped us better understand the material and also have a group discussion about how the other students viewed and interpreted the material.
