Working with an academic counselor is a great way to enhance your college experience. Our Student Success Specialists will help you with learning and life management strategies to help you succeed in the classroom. We will work with you to develop individualized success plans, and help you reach your academic goals through monitoring and communication with you throughout the semester. We can help you with organizing and managing your time, help you with note taking skills, test preparation, goal setting and so much more.
We also offer the LASSI (Learning and Study Strategies Inventory) to help you discover your strengths and weaknesses in areas such as test preparation, time management, and information processing. Our student success specialists get to know you as an individual. Through regular interactions, we can help you learn both your strengths and weaknesses and offer support and encouragement for you to have a successful college experience.
