Frequently Asked Questions
What Services Does the Office of Study Skills Offer?
We provide three main services designed to provide assistance to a diversity of students and settings:
- Campus Workshops -- these are presentations that we offer at the university for students, faculty, staff, and visiting groups.
- Campus Outreach -- these are workshops that are presented in classrooms, for student club and organization functions, and in the University Student Center. Workshops are by arrangement with the faculty, staff, and student leaders.
What Is the Purpose of the Workshops?
Workshop topics are related to student learning methods, education, and self-improvement skills. These are intended to enrich the educational experience and growth of SCSU students, the campus community, and the general community beyond the university.
Who Attends Campus Workshops?
The workshops are free and open to the entire SCSU campus community. Graduate and undergraduate students attend these presentations, as well as traditional, part-time, and non-traditional students. Faculty and staff also take advantage of the various programs for the benefit of their classes. Schools and organizations in the community are also welcome to benefit from our workshops by bringing their students and members on campus to attend various presentations. This experience introduces middle and high school students to the university, its academic curricula, and its campus life.
Who Are the Workshop Presenters?
Campus and outreach workshop presenters are university professionals who use their
time and experience to assist students to improve their specific academic and personal
skills. Guest speakers from the community are also invited to conduct the workshops.
All of the workshops are designed to help SCSU students and other audiences to improve
their skills with academic work and to enhance their daily lives on the campus and
in the community.
