Academic Skills

Cultivating good academic skills simply means paying as much attention to "how you learn" as well as "what you learn."

Maybe you study long hours for a major test, but still don't do as well as you hope.  Perhaps you spend all your time working on design, on homework, on reading, but you still feel behind.  Maybe you take diligent notes but find you're still not understanding the material.  If this sounds familiar, or if you have another issue that impacts your coursework, come see the Academic Success Skills Tutor or attend a College Success Skills Workshop!

We can help you learn how to:

  • Manage your time so that you can sleep, eat, and get everything done
  • Study more efficiently
  • Remember what you study
  • Take more effective notes
  • Think critically about your design or writing process
  • Practice oral presentations
