Academic Skills Workshops

The ULC's Academic Skills 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.  Workshops are kept small and discuss topics include proofreading, close reading to develop a thesis, study strategies, and more.

 

Study Smart Series

We all want to succeed in life. We have countless ideas about what it means to be a happy and successful college student. But sometimes we just need skills and tools to help us get there. That's where this workshop series comes in. We will provide practical strategies and skills for tapping into and nurturing your own happiness, including several research-based activities that foster social and emotional wellbeing and promote an opportunity for growth.

WEEK #2 REGISTRATION: Finding your own Signature Strength (sign-up below).

We often find ourselves thinking about our weaknesses more than we do our strengths. Think about the last time you got a grade below what you expected. The first question you tend to ask yourself is what went wrong, rarely ever what went right? In this workshop we will go over  skills and techniques to use for self-improvement, discuss character strengths, and talk about how we can utilize them in our day to day lives.

In addition to subject-matter tutoring, the ULC's Learning Assistants 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 LAs are here to help you. They are your peers, and want to pass along the tips they wish they'd had before! Come to our Afternoon Learning Series to learn how to become a better student, or visit them one-on-one for specific advice.
