Academic Support Instruction (ASI)
An Academic Resource for First Year students!
ASI sessions are scheduled by appointment on topics such as:
- Communicating with Professors
- Learning Styles
- Reading Strategies
- Study Skills
- Test-Taking Skills
- Time and Stress Management
This is a great opportunity for First Year students to work on honing their academic skills at the University level.
Who is the target population for ASI?
First Year Students mainly, but upperclassmen who still do not feel confident in their academic skills are encouraged to call and make an appointment. Also, this is a great resource for RAs and Community Activities Board members who want to put on an academic program or get more information to help residents!
When and Where are sessions offered?
Call 540-568-4713 to schedule. These can be individual appointments or feel free to bring a friend or make an appointment for an organization or group. Just let them know how many people you are making the appointment for, so they can be prepared. Also, when you call, indicate the topic(s) you would like covered during your appointment. Most appointments will take place in Huffman Hall and run 30 minutes, but can be shortened or lengthened to meet your needs.
Who facilitates ASI?
The facilitators of ASI are upper-class students who work in FYI. They have a desire and interest in helping students achieve academic success. Use your facilitators as resources and ask lots of questions.
If I attend one session do I need to attend additional sessions on this topic?
No. If you attend one session on study skills, then you will get the information you need to help you in that area. However, if you want additional learning tools, attend sessions that cover other topics as well. You may find that overlap in areas such as test-taking skills and study skills can only help!
