The Academic Success Center will be offering two types of workshops again this Fall.

Fun Friday Workshops are single-topic workshops offered on a variety of study skills topics. These workshops will start at 1:50pm and 3pm in LAAH 467.

The second type of workshops are geared toward students that need assistance with multiple study skills areas. These Commit to Success workshops run for 4 weeks, meeting twice a week. Students are required to attend all 8 meetings in order to earn a certificate of completion. We currently have 14 iterations of this workshop series scheduled for the Fall semester.

Please see the attached schedules for topics and dates/times at the link below. Registration is required for both types of workshops. Students can register at SuccessCenter.tamu.edu or ers.tamu.edu.
