Get a Smart Start This Fall

Whether you are new to campus or you've been here for years, September on campus is an exciting time. We're here to help.


Student Learning Services offers Smart Start each September, a week long series of academic workshops in the following categories

  • Study Skills
  • Writing Help
  • Technology Help
  • Graduate Student Help
  • Undergraduate Research
  • Library Skills

During your first few weeks of classes you will be creating a new routine, meeting new people and enjoying Orientation and Welcome Week events. By the fourth week of classes you might be looking for some direction on how to find academic success in university and that's where Smart Start can help. Planning is underway, we are finalizing the details, and we are looking forward to meeting you in the fall.

Workshops will be listed on this page in mid-September. We will be doing a daily draw for a gift certificate from the U of S Bookstore. At each workshop you attend, you receive an entry form.
