Success over Survival: Crash Courses for Better Grades

How’s the new semester? Still adjusting? Figuring it out? There are a lot of things going on and we hope you are finding your academic groove as you settle into a new semester and continue to learn throughout and beyond.

We understand that there are challenges along the way, and we are excited to invite you to our inaugural Success over Survival: Crash Courses for Better Grades workshops. These are dedicated to help you with learning tools, resources and other strategies for success rather than just hoping to survive the semester. These workshops are open to both new and continuing students, and we’re hoping you’ll join us!
