F.O.C.U.S.²  is another great resource to help students succeed academically in their first year of college. F.O.C.U.S.²  is a FREE program that begins the sixth week of classes, right in time for midterms! Sessions meet one hour per week for five weeks. You won't need to spend a lot of time on session preparation for F.O.C.U.S.² , because you'll be using what you learn to prepare for all your other classes.

Facilitators will help students learn how to remain motivated and get the most out of their study time. Class topics include:

    • Setting Goals and Staying Motivated

    • Learning Styles

    • How to read those BIG, FAT textbooks!

    • Lecture Note Taking

    • Time and Stress Management

    • Test-Taking Strategies

    • Study Skills

    • Interacting with Professors

The F.O.C.U.S.² class sign ups are now complete for the fall semester.
