Academic Workshops

The Academic Success Center offers many free workshops on a variety of topics that provide techniques and strategies to help students succeed. There are workshops that are presented by staff within the Academic Success Center, by faculty and staff at Southern, and the majority of our workshops are presented by our Peer Mentors.  Academic workshops are offered throughout the semester at specific dates and times.  These workshops are scheduled based on the academic calendar and student needs during different stages of the semester.  Workshops are 20 to 50 minutes in length.  We encourage students to attend as many academic workshops that apply to their needs as possible. 

Faculty and staff, if you would like the Academic Success Center to do a specific presentation for your students, please contact the Center to arrange this.
