CSA Overview [-]
Salisbury University's Center for Student Achievement has a plethora of free resources to help students reach their academic goals. Resources include tutoring, supplemental instruction, academic coaching, study skills workshops, PRAXIS test support, as well as the TRiO ACHiEVE and Fall Fusion programs. If you would like more information on what the CSA has to offer, this is the workshop for you.
Goal Setting [-]
Do you feel like you are wandering aimlessly through a forest of homework, papers, and exams every semester? You may need help setting clear goals for yourself. Creating short-term goals can help you make the most of your time and keep you on track to reach your long-term goals - graduating and getting a job you love! If you could use some guidance creating short- and long-term academic or personal goals, this is the workshop for you.
Is Your Sleep In Jeopardy? [-]
Adjusting to college life can wreak havoc on your sleep schedule. You might have morning classes Monday and Wednesday, night classes Tuesday and Thursday, and a work schedule that changes every week. How do you keep up with classes, homework, a social life, and still have time to sleep? Come to the CSA's workshop "Is Your Sleep in Jeopardy?" to find out.
Learning Styles [-]
We here at the CSA know that not all students learn the same way. Some are visual learners, some are verbal learners, and some might learn best while running, listening to music, or eating. Do you know what style of learning best suits your needs? If you don't, you could be making your life more difficult than it needs to be. Come to this workshop to find out how to study smarter, not harder.
Listening & Reading [-]
Have you ever walked out of a lecture and immediately forgot what it was even about? How often have you read a chapter from a textbook and thought "what did I just read?" Listening and Reading are not as easy as you think! If you would like tips on how to get the most out of your lectures and reading assignments, this is the workshop for you. Just remember, more you learn the first time around, the less you will have to re-teach yourself for the exam!
Memory [-]
Ever wonder why you can remember all the lyrics to that ridiculous pop song, but can't seem to remember any of the vocabulary terms for your next exam?  Come to the CSA's workshop on Memory and Retention to learn how to make your brain work for you instead of against you.
Note-Taking [-]

Do you get hand cramps in class from trying to write down every word the professor says? Give your pencil a break! There is a better way for you to take notes in class and from your textbooks, and still get all of the information you need. If you are never sure what to write down or how to write it, this is the workshop for you.

 

Prep for Finals [-]

Finals week - the five days all college students dread. With a little work and a lot of planning, you too can survive finals week. Come to the CSA's "Prep for Finals" workshop to learn how to study for your finals so that you can keep that great GPA and your sanity.

 

Study Skills [-]

Do you study for hours and hours and still can't get that A? Studying doesn't have to consume your life, and it doesn't have to be hard. We here the CSA view studying as an art that must be learned and practiced. If you want to learn how to study smarter, not harder, this is the workshop for you.

 

Test Taking [-]

When you hear the word "exam," do you immediately panic? Exams don't have to be scary. Come to the CSA's workshop on test taking to learn some tips and tricks that will help you perform your very best on class exams, and even standardized exams like the GRE's, LSATS, or PRAXIS.

 

Time Management [-]

Are you always turning in assignments late? Do you pull all-nighters to write a paper or study for an exam? You need a time management intervention! Come to the CSA's workshop on Time Management to learn how to budget your time so that you have time to do what you WANT to do and still get done all the things you HAVE to do. (Yes, it is possible!)

 

Understanding Your Syllabus [-]

In college, your class syllabus is your lifeline - even more than your phone (yes, I said your phone). A syllabus might look confusing at first, but it is the road map that will guide you through your college courses. If you need help reading your class syllabus or just can't figure out how your syllabus could possibly be more important than your phone (yes, I'm sure), then this is the workshop for you.
