Every student should visit with the Office of Academic Achievement at some point during their time on the Cliff. College is meant to be challenging, and while we rock our challenges, there are other times that we need some help. Meet with the Director of Academic Achievement, Jessie, or the Coordinator, Maria! They can help you make a successful plan to get back on track through setting and achieving academic goals and connecting you with campus resources, like financial aid or course mentors.
Even better, choose to meet with one of the Academic Peer Mentors; these are your fellow students who can help you get organized, create a planner, learn how to study, and more!
The transition to college can be difficult for students, whether you’re a freshman right out of highschool or a parent attending classes for the first time in years. Difficulties can range from time management and study skills to needing someone who simply understands. That’s what we are here for. Make an appointment with an Academic Peer Mentor, or stop by in the upper level of the library! If we can’t help you, we’ll connect you with someone who can.
Is your child struggling in classes or coping with the transition of college life? The answer is simple: come to Academic Achievement!
