GENERAL ACADEMIC SKILLS
Want to find a different way to take notes, prepare for exams, manage your time, or even organize your assignments? We cover it all in our FREE Academic Skills Workshops. They're held nearly every Wednesday from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in Bear Down Gym.
We partner with UA Libraries and the Graduate Center to offer targeted workshops for graduate students. These FREE workshops cover topics such as managing your library resources, important skills and strategies for academic success, and writing in grad school.
Workshops occur on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. Workshops will occur at La Aldea Graduate Housing, just south of 4th Street and west of Tyndall Avenue (west and south of the Tyndall Garage). Your map app will find it at 825 E. 5th Street.
New in Fall '16! The THINK TANK and International Student Services (ISS) present a 7-week conversational speaking series—an opportunity to practice and strengthen communication skills while learning academic success strategies. All workshops are held on Wednesdays from 4-5 PM in the Office of Student Engagement (SUMC Suite 248).
THINK TANK @ DRC
In collaboration with Disability Resources, we offer weekly academic skills workshops followed by drop-in tutoring. The academic skills tutor can help students develop more effective study skills, better manage time and stress, or prepare for exams and presentations. Workshops are held on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. in DRC’s second floor student lounge, room D217.
