PASS Academic Skills Workshops

PASS workshops are designed to help students build and develop critical academic skills. If you have ever wanted to sharpen your study skills, or make a better plan to manage your time, these short 55-minute programs would be a good investment! Each workshop is designed to give you something to walk away with- a study plan, a self-diagnosis, a learning style assessment, and more. All sessions are led by trained students who, although they have been successful, are always looking for ways to improve their own skills.
