Academics

Academic Leaders Series

The Academic Leaders Series is a group of optional workshops designed to provide additional support and opportunities for growth to our students through topics that matter to them as unique learners. Workshops include the following:

 

Lewis & Clark Major Selection for Undeclared Students

Much like Lewis and Clark, CUC’s undeclared students are great explorers.  All students should value the opportunities granted in college to test the waters, to satisfy curiosity and to expand knowledge.  At CUC, students who have not officially declared a major have campus resources and staff members available to assist with discovering the major and career path that best serves student needs, goals and interests.  During this workshop, students will be introduced to three key steps and three free resources that will help identify programs that will positively impact long-term decision making goals, lead to a meaningful college experience and promote timely graduation. 

 

How to Get Good Grades

When you come to college you are not only responsible for learning the content in your courses, but also learning what it means to be a college student. There is a lot more responsibility being put on you to prepare ahead of time for class and come ready to participate. This session is designed to help students of any academic year meet the challenges of their courses and get good grades. We will do activities to teach you how to take good notes in class, gather the most important information when you go through reading assignments, and how to successfully approach studying and test taking.

 

Time Management, Getting Organized

Great time management means being effective as well as efficient.  Managing time successfully means spending your time on things that are important, not just urgent.  Learning to manage your time in an effective way can help you get more done each day.  From setting goals and planning wisely to tackling procrastination, this workshop will provide you with some tips and tools to build time management skills and get organized.

Would you like to graduate early?  Are you a strong test taker?  Do you or your parents pay property taxes?  Do you get bored over the summer while you wait for the fall semester to start?  If you answered yes, then the 4 C’s are for you.  Let me show you how to use the CLEP Test and transfer Credits from your local Community College to your advantage.  This presentation can and will ultimately save you two extremely valuable commodities:  Your Time & Your Money!
