Student Success Workshops
Students For Success Workshops
We offer short workshops on various topics pertaining to student academic success. These workshops are open to all Malone students and range in attendance as many as 150 students! One workshop for each semester will be offered multiple times during free non-chapel hour blocks and/or evening options. The other workshop for each semester will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. in the Randall Campus Stewart Room with free food served at the conclusion of the program.
Although the Director of Student Retention in the Center for Student Success coordinates the SFS programs, speakers are brought in from the Malone faculty and from outside professionals. Program formats include panel discussions, skits, games, PowerPoint or video presentations, group and/or partner exercises, and lectures. We are very intentional about choosing topics of interest and easy application to daily student life.
Spring 2013 offerings:
Join us Wednesday, January 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Stewart Room of the Barn for "Where Does the Time Go?" A panel of our Malone Resident Directors (Beth Buchwalter, Rhett Edwards, Mike Hansen and Ali Walls) will use humor and hands-on application to help us explore ways to curb that nasty (but-oh-so-common) habit of procrastination. Free pizza will be served at the conclusion and sign-in sheets will be provided for classes offering homework points for your attendance.
Join us either Monday or Tuesday, March 11 or 12 (10 a.m. and 7 p.m. choices) in the Mitchell Hall Silk Auditorium for "Take Charge of Your Academic Advising!" Members of the Center for Student Success and the Office of the Registrar will share tips for mapping out degree plans, understanding the degree audits, planning the timing of courses, navigating the online registration system, etc. We can help you make wise choices for summer classes and be prepared for Advising Week (when students are required to set up meetings with academic advisers 3.13 - 3.20).
