Abstract

This is the period of time when first tests are returned and often‚ for first year students‚ the newness of the college experience loses its luster.

Tuesday‚ Sept. 25‚ 12:30 − 1:30 p.m. Learning Styles Workshop sponsored by Counseling and Advising Program Services Center. This workshop will help students gain an understanding of their own learning style and will offer ways to adapt that style to different classes.
