Academic Skills Center Spring 2017 Resources

The Academic Skills Center offers many programs and workshops each term to help students succeed.

Speed Reading

Mondays and Wednesdays, April 3, 5, 10, & 12

Speed reading helps you learn and study more effectively and efficiently. Not only will you read faster, but you'll develop increased comprehension, enhanced recall, and flexible reading skills.
