- Adjusting your learning style to a learning task
- Managing your time effectively and organizing unscheduled time
- Combating procrastination
- Analyzing and effectively using a syllabus
- Reading strategically
- Taking notes that convert into effective study tools
- Conquering test anxiety and do well on tests
Workshops for Academic Success, open to all students and offered throughout the semester, focus on topics to promote academic success, such as adapting to college expectations, time management, study skills, grammar and essay revision and writing personal statements.
