STUDENT LINGO ONLINE WORKSHOPS
The "job" of being a good college student requires many skills. Besides the necessity for good reading, writing and calculating abilities, the successful student needs to learn how to take good notes (lecture and texts), manage his/her time, appropriately "read" a textbook, prepare for and take college-level exams, and much more. A series of on-demand study skills workshops covering some of these areas are available 24/7 via this link: https://www.studentlingo.com/cotc-osun/.
These 50-minutes in-person seminars provide students research-based principles on traditional academic challenges and the strategies to overcome those challenge. Use this link for the current schedule of campus-based workshops.
