The SSC is committed to helping students achieve academic success and has created a collection of tools and idea sheets to help those who seek a better approach to learning. The collection includes tips for study skills and strategies, taking better notes, helpful hints for all types of exams, and information on how study skills are affected by learning and personality styles. 

Those resources can be found HERE in the Academic Coaching Folder on Google Drive for immediate access or may be picked up as handouts from the Academic Coaching Binder in the Student Success Center (Miller Hall 227).

Below are links to external resources with additional information in several different areas as well as a few additional resources not in our Coaching Binder.
