What it's all about: Finding ways to expand knowledge and skills, and recognizing creative abilities

Some questions to ask yourself to gauge your current Academic (Intellectual) Wellbeing:

  • Am I confident about my academic major decisions?
  • Am I confident in my ability to find solutions to my problems?
  • Am I confident that I can learn new skills?
  • Am I interested in learning new things?
  • Do I engage in intellectually engaging activities?
  • Do I feel that my education is a priority?
  • Was I able to manage my academic workload during my most recent academic term?

Want to increase your Academic (Intellectual) Wellbeing? Here are a few suggestions and resources:

  • Develop positive relationships with your professors – visit with them during office hours!
  • If you are struggling in your classes, use campus resources such as tutoring, the library, counseling services, disability services and academic and career advising.
  • Consider applying for the SCC Honors Program! The Scottsdale Community College Honors Program fosters critical thinking and academic excellence among students who are motivated to pursue academic enrichment.
  • Engage in discussions with friends and family members about topics that are intellectually stimulating.
  • Listen – When you participate in active listening you are able to fully comprehend the information that is being given to you.
  • Travel – A great way to gain knowledge as well as an appreciation for another culture is to experience it yourself. Express your creative side by exploring different avenues of creativity and artistic expressions.
