Study Skills Workshops

Each term we offer a set of Study Skills Workshops on topics in study skills including topics such as time management, note-taking, and exam preparation. These study skills workshops are facilitated by PAL Peer Mentors, designed with an undergraduate student population in mind, and are free for all current U of S students.

Study skills workshops are offered during the Fall and Winter semesters. 

Drop-In Study Skills Help

Drop by and talk with a Study Skills Peer Mentor to obtain information and resources on study skills and student support at the U of S from a trained peer.

Study Skills Peer Mentors are students who have completed one or more year at the U of S, are academically strong and trained in the Peer Assisted Learning Program. They will listen to your questions and provide information on study skills, student support services at the U of S, and share advice when appropriate

This service is open to all U of S undergraduate students with a particular warm welcome to students in their first year of study.
