ASC Goal

The ASC works to instill the value of independent learning. It assists first-year students in adjusting from high school-level work to college-level work. Students learn to understand underlying principles so that when they see a problem, they can identify specific patterns and concepts, and strategies for how to approach them. Ultimately, students feel greater confidence in their own abilities.

Study Skills Programs

The ASC professional staff conducts Academic Expectation Workshops for first-year students during Orientation and the fall semester. All students are invited to attend study skills programs at any time during their time at Assumption. The programs concentrate on important skills including:

  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Note-taking
  • Reading strategies
  • Test preparation
