Academic Success Workshops

We offer a series of dynamic workshops each semester that center on the intangible skills that impact success for college students. The topics range from innovative study techniques and skill building, introduction to learning software, and how to take more control over the socio-emotional responses (stress, anxiety, motivation) which empower students through the informative, positive, and engaging approach to delivering these lessons on success building. Workshops are open to all Fresno State students and pre-registration is not necessary. Please bring your student ID to the workshop location so we can record your attendance. Workshops are on a first come, first serve basis (as room capacity permits). Please browse our Spring 2019 Academic Success Workshop calendar (below), and add the topics/dates/times/locations that are of interest to you from our Google calendar below:
