College Learning and Study Strategies (CLASS) are one hour seminars that cover topics that will enhance your academic achievement; such as Note Taking, Time Management, Stress Management and many others. The sessions are held from 2-2:45pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please come by or email at least 1 day before the workshop you would like to attend. There are flyers posted around campus with specific topics and the times that they are offered.
