COVID-19 Updates:

Success Skills Workshops

COVID-19 Announcement: Success Skills Workshops will occur live and remotely through WebEx. Students will be able to register workshops through TutorTrac and can view the schedule found below.

Success Skills Workshops are one-hour sessions that focus on skills students need to be successful in college (study skills, note-taking, motivation, etc.). While there is no shortcut to success, the goal of the workshops is to empower students to identify and apply academic habits and soft skills through a deeper understanding and purpose of them.

Workshop topics are chosen based on research and student feedback that lead to stronger academic success. Each workshop in the series is led by a Learning Commons staff member and features interactive breakout sessions with peer educators.

Review the workshop descriptions below and then register for each workshop by clicking on the "RSVP for Success Skills Workshops" button below. For a step-by-step guide on how to register, go to How to RSVP for Success Skills Workshop. Registration closes 12 hours prior to the workshop start time. 

NOTE: By registering, you are reserving a limited seat. If you must cancel, email Hannah Williamson at by 11:00 AM the morning of the workshop. If you do not cancel within this time frame or at all, your workshop will be marked as a No Show. Two workshops with this status will affect your ability to attend future workshops.
