- Students may call the Studio (966.6301) or stop by during operating hours to make an appointment; if the Studio is not open, students should make an appointment in book kept in the Academic Success Center. We hope to have an online appointment system at some point in the near future, so watch your email!
- Sessions are limited to either 25 minutes or 50 minutes. Also, students should have only one appointment on the schedule book at a time unless they have spoken with me about developing a semester-long plan.
- Graduate students are encouraged to use the Writing Studio. For longer writing assignments, they should schedule an hour-long appointment and expect to work through 5-7 pages of text per appointment.
- Faculty members will receive notification of students who attend the Studio.

The Office of Academic Advising and Support coordinates a series of workshops aimed at addressing areas that seem to give college students difficulty. Workshops are offered throughout the semester and students will be notified via campus email of the dates and topics. Videos are also available that cover material presented in the workshops. You can access them HERE and log on to the site using your network login information. Once inside, check the left-hand menu for a folder labeled "Student Sucess Workshops" and find a topic that meets your needs.
Here’s the schedule of remaining workshops offered this semester by the Academic Success Center. You’ll be given the opportunity to reserve a seat for each workshop (seating is limited) about a week before it’s scheduled. Workshops will typically be offered twice during the week they are scheduled (exceptions are noted). Specific scheduling information will be sent in an informational email approximately one week before the date of the workshop.
“A Notable Experience”
Tuesday, Sept. 4 and Wednesday, Sept. 5
It’s your class notes that provide you with a record of what happens during the class hour, and it’s those notes that are your primary tool for preparing for tests. But many students find that their notes are anything but helpful—poorly organized, almost indecipherable—and at times can be an impediment to success. This workshop will provide suggestions for improving this important skill. This workshop will be led by Rob Mossack, Director of Academic Advising.
“Testing One, Two, Three, Four
Wednesday, Sept. 12 and Thursday, Sept. 13
The bane of college students’ existence: the test. Not many words strike as much fear into the heart of a student than that little four letter word that starts with “t.” This workshop will offer insight into some ways to take the fear out of testing, including a sure-fire approach to test preparation that will allow you to be ready on the big day. This workshop will be led by Allison West, who works in our Career Development Center.
“Learn it YOUR Way"
Tuesday, Sept. 18 and Wednesday, Sept. 19
Are you a visual, aural, or kinesthetic learner? Knowing the difference could save you hours of study time! Discover ways to use your strengths and personal
learning style to maximize both your study times AND classroom experiences. Teresa Williams, Director of Student Advocacy, will facilitate the workshop.
“Making it Count"
Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Thursday, Sept. 2
(Special time: 7:00 pm)
