Student success

Study strategies

Visit our study strategies page for useful tips on preparing for college.

Lunch and Learn

Lunch and Learns are opportunities for students to gain both academic and life skills in an informal setting. They are held in the fall and cover topics that help students, particularly those new to the University, learn about their campus home, manage academic programs and adjust to university life. Download the schedule.

Check out Student Lingo's 24/7 online workshops which include Time Management, Learning Strategies Every Student Should Know, and Reading Comprehension Strategies.

Academic improvement

Do you want to learn new and effective ways to enhance your learning? Would you like to improve your academic performance in test-taking, note-taking, or other study skills or behaviors? Set up an individual appointment with the Learning Center staff for guidance on how to develop strategies based on your own learning styles and needs. Contact the Learning Center Director for more information.

Students may be referred to take assessments such as the Learning and Study Skills Inventory (LASSI) during their individual appointments.

Early Alert

The Early Alert program is a component of student success which supports student learning by identifying Freshman students who may be at risk of academic difficulty or failure. Students are most often referred by faculty via an online form. Outreach will be provided after this form is submitted, with a focus on connecting students to campus resources that will support their academic success.
