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.


The University Learning Center Presents:  A Series of Welcome Week Workshops

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.
