SPC students are invited to a free event, Off on the Right Foot: strategies of successful students, to familiarize themselves with college life on Friday, Aug. 22. The event runs from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Clearwater Campus in ES 104 and was funded by a 2014 SPC Foundation Innovation Grant.
The goal of the pilot program is to help students discover campus resources, attend workshops to learn good study and life skills, and meet other SPC students, faculty and support staff.
The program includes a number of 40-minute workshops on topics that include:
- Turn a Syllabus Into a Semester Plan
- Work Smarter: Tips From ‘A’ Students
- Balancing School and Life Demands
- Study Skills for Math and Science Courses
- Match Your Major to Your Dream Job
- Maximizing Financial Aid and Scholarships
Free breakfast and lunch is provided and a few students will leave with prizes that include a bookstore gift card, a graphing calculator or a Nook tablet.
Advanced registration is strongly encouraged. Walk-ins are accepted if seats are available on the day of the event. For more information, contact Jenica Ibarra, Reference and Instruction Librarian in Learning Resources, at 727-791-2771.
