Take-Home Lessons

• In-coming freshman are unaware of their own lack of study skills and as a result are often confused when they do not perform as well as they did in high school.
• Targeted interventions integrating content, exams, study skills, and learning community building can have an impact on student success in specific courses and on long-terms factors such as retention in the major and graduation rate.
