Join this workshop, get better grades

a game coverCollege professor Kenneth J. Sufka spent decades helping students figure out where they went wrong: Why weren’t their study skills translating into good grades?

The answer, he found, is that many study habits range from ineffective to horrible. In response, he wrote “The A Game.” It contains nine simple rules for academic success, and a list of dozen “deadly habits” to avoid.

Our Global Connections program has invited Dr. Sufka to hold a workshop with Global Campus students about how to make the most of their study time. Please join us for his interactive online presentation at 3 p.m. Aug. 24 by selecting this link.
