An Overview of Student Success 101

Student Success 101 is a course that provides students with the knowledge and skills needed for success in college and lifelong learning. In this course, students learn about college policies and are introduced to a variety of campus resources. The class provides students with the opportunity to learn fundamental academic skills (study strategies, note-taking, conducting research, organizational tools, etc.) and put these skills into practice.

Throughout the semester, students will set both long-term and short-term goals and learn how to make good decisions in school, career, and personal life. Students work both independently and in groups, developing effective interpersonal skills and creating connections with classmates, instructors, and other members of the college community.

July 6th in the Advising Center

As all of us endure and adjust to the record breaking heat of today, it's interesting to note the increased traffic here in the Center. As the long Independence Day weekend becomes a distant memory, students are increasingly eager to prepare for the Fall 2010 semester.

Many students
arrived at the Center today with the realization that the new semester is only two months away. The lines are starting to grow but there are advisors ready and willing to assist our students in any way that they can.

Please come as soon as you can and avoid the longer wait that surely will occur as July turns into August.
