Take Action!

Take Action with Study Skills Consultations. Students needing academic assistance outside of a specifc course can set up individal appointments or group presentations to learn skills such as note taking, test preparation, and time managament

Study Skills Topics

Through activities and assessments students will identify both their challenges and goals for how they prioritize their time. Students will also learn different methods for using a planner, and determine the style that will work best for them. 

For students who complete the time management consultation, a follow up appointment is recommended to assess how their chosen strategies are working. 

Note taking is an essential skill for all college students. In this session, students will learn the different methods of note-taking, strategies for reading and annotation, and how to incorporate  their notes into active learning strategies like creating concept maps, note organization, and reading notes aloud.

Students are welcome to schedule follow up appointments to track their progress. 

The Test-taking session will  focus on active studying methods, tips for taking the  exam, and strategies for reducing test anxiety. This session will introduce students to the "5 Day Study Plan". We'll also look at how you can best learn from past exams.  

Students are welcome to schedule follow up appointments to track their progress.
