Learning and Studying Skills
Transitioning to college can present challenges for many reasons - new environment, new relationships, and more freedom. One challenge that many students face is learning/studying and time management. Thankfully, there are resources to help students develop successful learning skills, reduce test anxiety, and help navigate the hidden rules of lectures and office hours. There are also many time management and organization apps available. Additionally, Swem library has some ebooks available to help with adjusting to college.
Another challenge that students face is being their own self-advocates for almost everything. It is important for students to be aware of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and how to prepare for postsecondary education. Part of preparing for postsecondary education also includes learning about what auxiliary aids and services are available.
