Welcome Distance Learners!

Good morning TWU Distance Learners and welcome to the fall 2009 semester! I hope your classes are going well so far and that you are getting into a new routine without any problems.

Don't forget about the Getting Started Guide. It's a great tool to go through if you've never taken an online class before. It covers how to communicate, Blackboard tools and services that are available to you as an online learner, as well as other tips to be successful!

Don't let your career plans take back burner! Whether you are graduating this year or have several semesters left, it's never too early to prepare for your career. Come to the 2009-2010 Career Seminars to get prepared and then when you are ready to look for that new job, attend one of the 2009-2010 Career Days! You'll be glad you did!

The TWU Connection is here to inform you about available services and programs as well as important dates and policies that could affect you. If you'd like to subscribe to this blog so that you never miss an announcement, you can do that via email or RSS - both forms are on the right side of the page.
