Stay Motivated - Remote Academic Help
Academic Skills Advising
Do you ever lose track of time? Do you sit down to do your work and two hours later realize you have been on Facebook/Twitter/YouTube/Instagram/Netflix without even opening a book? Did you study for an hour or less just before an exam in high school and manage A’s? Are you starting to realize that this isn’t working for your current courses? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then academic skills advising is for you! Set up a remote appointment today with the Educational Resource Center.
Remote Office Hours
Office hours are still in session for student assistance and are tied to the Blackboard sites. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment with a peer helper if you are not already in contact with one.
