Student Success Workshops

Each semester the Office of Student Support and Family Engagement (SSFE) offers a series of Student Success Workshops that help students improve skills, learn about support resources on campus, and get to know tips and trips for making each semester successful.  Below you will find the Student Success Workshops for the Fall 2018 semester:
