Succeeding in the Sciences Groups

These groups are designed to offer students following a pre-med, pre-health, and other science-based curriculums a space to discover and explore evidence-based study strategies applicable to both the sciences as well as general education courses. Group sessions are facilitated by certified Study Skills Coaches who are, in addition, high-achieving students in the sciences. While sessions are relatively structured, they are also collaborative in nature allowing participants a chance to address individual concerns. 

Benefits of participating in our Succeeding in the Sciences Groups include:

  • identification of ineffective, time-wasting study habits
  • time and task-management to better balance course load this semester and beyond
  • procrastination elimination strategies
  • applicable, brain-based learning strategies to boost academic performance
  • connect with peers and meet potential study partners
