Developing your own system of organization and time management will help you be in control of your life and learning. You will assess your current approach and identify strategies that you can put in place immediately to help you achieve your goals and improve your effectiveness.

Making the Most of your Faculty & Advisor Relationships
Students who make an effort to “relate” with their faculty and advisor tend to do better in college.  They can’t help you without your participation, though.  Come to this workshop to discuss stress free ways to interact and relate to your faculty and advisors.

Study Strategies that Work
Most students know that in order to get good grades, outside study time is important. What many students don’t know is what to do to make that study time effective. We will share “The Power Hour” study technique that will help you focus your study time.  We will also share active learning strategies so that you get the most out of your studying.

Ace that Test!
Doing your best on tests/exams requires a plan.  Each course and each exam is different and successful test performance is a process that begins way before the test is given and continues after the test is over.  This workshop will discuss the three stages of test-taking and help you establish a test preparation plan that you can use in each of your courses.  The time to start preparing for your next exam is NOW!

From Procrastination to Motivation
If procrastination is getting in the way of your academic success, this workshop will help you identify your source of procrastination and learn strategies to increase your motivation to get your work done. We can’t motivate you – but you can! We will discuss action steps that you can take to turn your procrastination into motivation and your self-doubt into self-confidence.

Academic Stress: What Causes it and how to Cope 
Challenging classes, pressure to get good grades and juggling multiple responsibilities can all contribute to stress in college.  High expectations (yours and others) and perfectionism can make this stress worse.  Identify your personal sources of academic stress and learn strategies to manage it so that you can do your best!

There’s Apps for That!
Did you know that there are Apps that can help you study? Come to our workshop to find out about free Apps that can help make learning easier for you. Be sure to bring your laptop, i-pad, or smart phone device to try them out!

A Final Exam Plan for Low Stress and High Success
Procrastination may be your middle name, but don’t wait until a week (or a few days) before the final to begin your preparation! At this workshop, we will discuss test-taking tips and strategies specifically relating to final exams. Final exams can cause stress and anxiety levels to rise, even in the very best students. Come and identify strategies to deal with the stress that comes with taking tests.
