Did You Know: Academic resources

Are you making a New Year’s resolution for 2020? The beginning of the year is a time when many focus on self-improvement and sparking positive change. During the month of January, we will highlight resources around campus that will help faculty, staff and students work toward a better, more fulfilled year.

January marks the start of a new year and a new semester, making it an ideal time for students to put a renewed focus on their academics. Students who want additional academic support can draw from a number of resources. A few ways to get help are listed below.

Students can build their academic skills with UNIV 100 courses. Three non-credit, pass/no pass classes are available and can help students establish such skills as time management, presenting, academic reading and more. 

To get help with their studies, students also can take advantage of peer tutoring one-on-one or in a group setting and supplemental instruction sessions, which are led by fellow students for classes that are known to be challenging. 

For students who want to focus on their writing skills, the Writing Resource Center offers consultations to assist students no matter where they are in their writing process. 

Students also are encouraged to connect with their instructors by going to their office hours.
