Study Skills Support

We come to college to learn but rarely do we actually consider the best strategies for learning. Effective learning involves lots of skills including:

  • Planning out long-term projects such as papers
  • Effective and efficient reading
  • Managing stress and test anxiety
  • Moving beyond memorization to analysis and synthesis
  • Developing strategies to become “actively engaged” in the material
