Academic Skills Workshops


Academic Skills and Success Workshops focus on building skills necessary to succeed in college.  Although not always tied to a specific class, the skills you learn with us will help you in a variety of courses throughout your academic career.  Topics include proofreading, close reading to develop a thesis, as well as English language support.


Time Management 

Plan ahead and begin preparations for spring finals. Finish the semester strong with a time management workshop! RSVP below. 


Proofreading Clinics

By using their own drafts, students will learn and apply valuable proofreading strategies that will help them polish their pieces before submission, alleviating careless mistakes and the grade reductions that may accompany them. Proofreading Clinics will be offered weekly with the exception of Spring Break. RSVP below!

Students are expected to bring a draft of their own writing.  45 - 50 minutes.


International Students
English Language and Writing Support

Conversation Circles, Writing Reviews, and weekly study groups for international and other undergraduate students for whom English is a second or other language.

Peer Academic Coaches

In addition to subject-matter tutoring, the ULC's Peer Academic Coaches can help you improve your learning skills and techniques. Whether you need assistance managing your time and putting together an appropriate study plan, or would like some tips and advice on note-making or efficient reading, our Coaches are here to help you. Like all of our Learning Assistants, the Coaches are your peers, and want to pass along the tips they wish they'd had before! Come to our Academic Skills Workshops to learn how to become a better student, or visit them one-on-one for specific advice.
