Student Success Series

The Student Success Series is a curriculum of workshops designed to strengthen students' learning and study skills. Workshops are taught by the Academic Services staff and Peer Educators. The cycle of workshops will be offered each semester. Students who attend workshops will be invited to celebrate their success with a Student Success certification ceremony and reception in April.

Benefits of attending workshops include:

  • Improve your memory and test scores
  • Get more connected with your peers
  • Be a stronger candidate when applying to be a CARL, FYL, Peer Mentor or Peer Tutor
  • Reach your full potential as a college student and beyond!
