Take the Course?
The 'Strategies for College Success' course is designed to
teach students what are often referred to as "study skills,"
those strategies or approaches that enable one to better
learn, understand and retain what is being taught, and the
ways to manage one's time and life, in the new environment of
college. The strategies and approaches covered utilize the
following basic skills: Take Reasonable Risk, Take
Responsibility for your Outcomes, Search the Environment,
and Use Feedback. These skills are applied to learning
from lectures and textbooks, preparing for exams, researching
and writing papers, managing tasks, making career decisions,
and managing oneself and one's life at college. For more
information, please click

Council for Student Development.
