Cruising Into College…with Academic Success Skills

Eager to start your college career at UMW off on the right foot or want to brush up on what it entails to be successful in your academics? Come join your classmates to make connections and develop college level study skills. Through this interactive, discussion based workshop series, students will learn about various topics that are critical to their academic success.

Our Peer Academic Consultants will be facilitating hands-on workshops to include the following topics: best practices for managing your time, effectively using course syllabi and professor office hours, and developing efficient note taking and study prep techniques to help navigate college level workloads. Additionally, students will discuss how to transition from an online to in-person learning environment.
