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 to 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 7-8:30 p.m. in the Randall Campus Stewart Room with free pizza served at the conclusion of the program.
The Center for Student Success coordinates the SFS programs with speakers from the Malone faculty and 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. Students, parents, and faculty are welcome to suggest additional topics.
Fall 2013 offerings:
Join us either Tuesday, Wednesday, OR Thursday, September 17, 18, or 19 at 7 p.m. in the Cattell Library for "Using the Library in the Digital Age." Members of our library staff will help you learn how to navigate limitless resources far beyond our walls to research for papers and presentations. Seating is limited (hence the three offerings) and you are asked to bring a laptop (students without laptops will be seated directly at the computers). 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 Tuesday, October 22 at 7 p.m. in the Mitchell Hall Silk Auditorium for "Take Charge of Your Academic Advising!" Members of the Center for Student Success 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 spring classes and be prepared for Advising Week (when students are required to set up meetings with academic advisers October 24-30). Sign-in sheets will be provided for classes offering homework points for your attendance.
