Success Workshops

What are the secrets to succeeding in college? Research shows that successful students all demonstrate similar habits that lead to their success, and in the Academic Success Center, we do not want those habits to be secrets! We have developed a series of workshops addressing the things successful students do to excel in their courses and prepare them for future careers. Join us to learn how you can implement these skills to develop success habits.
