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.
College is a new experience for everyone, but can present peculiarities when seen from the lens of an international student. Peer Academic Coaches will put things into perspective and give you tips on what to expect - and what will be expected of you - in this new environment!
Are your study skills a little rusty? Do you know your own style of studying and the best way for you to succeed at NYU? This workshop will touch on various study styles and learning strategies, and will hopefully introduce you to a new arsenal of tools to use to succeed in your classes and Achieve Excellence!
Life at NYU can be an exciting and often challenging experience. From classes to clubs, registration to roommates, managing your daily college life can be an adjustment. Get advice from Peer Academic Coaches (students who have been through it before) on managing your time instead of time managing you!
All Welcome Week sessions will be held in ARC LL01 (Academic Resource Center, 18 Washington Place, Lower Level).
All workshops are scheduled to last 45 - 60 minutes, and are held in one of our two locations (unless otherwise noted):

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.
