Why Office Hours are Important

Are you struggling to understand a certain course topic, homework assignment or want to review a test and learn from your mistakes? Office hours with your professors is a great way to get the help and answers that you need to succeed in a class. Don’t be shy, book the appointment and you won’t regret it.

The Ness School of Management and Economics takes pride in providing students with the most help and resources they would need during a class. Some professors offer daily office hours, some just always have their door open and are ready to help and some ask that you book and appointment through your D2L just to ensure they are available when needed.

So, what are some of the benefits of attending office hours? First, you are getting the help that you need to ensure that you are learning and don’t fall behind in class. Second, you are networking and building connections with the staff within the Business School, which could open many opportunities for future jobs, or other academic opportunities. Lastly, its shows the professors that you are committed to your academic success and willing to learn more and ask questions, you never know where your success will lead you.

This wonderful opportunity is at the fingertips for all students on campus and is something that everyone should take advantage of. Trust us when we say no question is a dumb question, that one simple question and time with the professor could open so many new doors full of opportunities.
