Academic Success

Date: Aug 2015

Welcome back everyone! Wow, what a difference it makes having all of the students back on campus. While it was nice to have some time over the summer to plan (and for those of us new folks, to help learn more about SU), it really is this time of year that the excitement kicks in. I thought I could take a moment today to address a mistake that I have seen several students make in this first week of the semester (otherwise known as “Syllabus Week”).

Yesterday, the Office of Academic Support (OAS) came together for the first time as a cohesive group to discuss the future directions of the Office.

During the retreat, we discussed a number of topics including how our individual strengths and weaknesses impact our abilities to work together as a team, our goals for respective components of the OAS, and the struggles that students often experience throughout their time in college. It truly is great to work with a group so committed to supporting students in their academic endeavors....Click here to read more.
