Come to Student Success Seminars for a chance to win a Kindle!

Providing additional resources for students to be successful is important to the mission of the SOAR Institute. As a result, Student Success Seminars are offered each Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:15 p.m. in room 2414 and are available to all currently enrolled Shelton State students. Chrishan Emonina, Tutor Supervisor, conducts the seminars which include a “take away” sheet for reference.
A different topic is featured each month with multiple sessions offered, as outlined below. During the last week of September and October, the Career Center will present career-related topics. These sessions will be held in the Career Center. Each time students attend a seminar, their names will be entered into a drawing for a free Kindle to be given away at the end of November.
In September , “The Student Survival Kit” presentations include note taking & study tips,
managing time, understanding plagiarism, and communicating with faculty and staff. The October sessions will stress how to “Find Your Balance.” Handling test anxiety and stress management will be the focus in these seminars. On October 30 and 31, the career focus will be on “Stress Free Job Tips for Holiday Employment.” In November, “Finish Strong” will portray understanding and conquering procrastination and using better time management.
