In the Academic Success Center, our name says it all – we are here to help Maranatha students succeed academically! Our mission is to promote academic success for all students, to enhance student performance, and to increase student retention. We help students to become better learners.
Entering college often means being introduced to a new learning environment: courses proceed at a rapid rate and cover large volumes of material with few tests. Students who develop additional methods of learning are able to adapt more quickly and be successful in their college careers.
Academic Coaching provides students with a chance to work individually with a professional staff member to improve academic skills, confidence, and performance. Students will be challenged in time management, test-taking skills, and learning strategies.
Study Skills Seminars
Study Skills Seminars will be offered online to assist students in enhancing and refining their academic skills. Workshop topics include time management, study skills, test-taking and preparation, learning styles and strategies, listening skills, and textbook reading.
