Academic Success Boot Camp 2017

Workshops & Info Sessions

Please consider signing up for the “Academic Success Boot Camp.” It is not remedial; rather it helps students build upon their current approach to academics and develop greater competency and confidence in efficient study strategies and familiarization of academic resources across campus. Each day will focus on developing the skills below:

  • Organization & Time Management
  • How to Critically Read & Annotate Texts
  • Improving Note Taking Skills using the Cornell Note Taking Method & Developing a Writing Process
  • Study Strategies & Preparing for Exams
  • Making use of Faculty Office Hours & Other Campus Resources

The four-day program will be held during the third week of classes (from Monday, September 11th to Thursday, September 14th). The 50-minute course is offered five times each day to allow flexibility in academic and campus involvement schedules. You can attend one session per day at any time as each class covers the same material during a given day. Enrollment will be limited on a first-come first-served basis. Please register for the Academic Success Boot Camp HERE.

We hope you will consider this opportunity to build upon current study skills and learn new techniques to apply to the rigor of college academic expectations. If your schedule does not enable you to attend, we meet individually with students on any of the topics mentioned above related to academic success. You can stop by 020 Higley or call 740-587-6666 to make an appointment. Also, we encourage you attend one of the Trajectory Series sessions that are offered 11:30 am - 12:30 pm on Thursday September 7, 21, and October 26 in Higley Auditorium.
