Whether academics have always been a struggle for you, you are experiencing academic
difficulties for the first time, or you just want to enhance the skills you already
have, we have some ideas that may help. Some tips are surprisingly simple to implement.
There are almost as many reasons to have academic difficulties as there are students
who have them. We will attempt to blend good general study skills strategies with
an individualized plan to get you back on track or to help you excel.
Two hour study skills group sessions are offered each month over two weeks on weekday
evenings. The sessions cover the topics listed below. The times of the sessions
vary each month. Pre-registration is required. Students should bring a notebook,
pencil, and pen with them. This program is open to the public.
