Academic Success Workshops

The Academic Success Workshops are a series of student support events offered each semester that center on addressing matters that impact success. We typically will introduce study strategies, innovative software, campus resources, and best practices to empower students through positive, interactive and collaborative lessons on success building. Workshops are open to all Fresno State students and pre-registration is not necessary. Please bring your student ID so we can record your attendance. Workshops are on a first come, first serve basis (as room capacity permits). See the Fall 2017 Academic Success Workshop calendar(below):
