Extreme Makeover Essay Edition

Writing papers and doing research can be one of the hardest tasks for students to master.  Because it is difficult many students balk at the task. 
This is unfortunate because writing and research are two skills that are mastered more easily when learned through repetition.

The Academic Support Center and the Learning Resources Division has worked jointly since last semester to offer workshops for students that focus on the
individual skills necessary for completing research papers.

During the first summer session, ASC-LRD is offering workshops that target five core areas: Effective Note Taking; Research Basics; Editing Drafts;

Encourage your students to attend!!
