CLAS Academic Skills Workshops

Academic skills workshops provide Suffolk students with an introduction to strategies, techniques and habits that can help them succeed in classes holistically.

CLAS academic skills workshops are typically 45-50-minutes long and are led by our very own tutors and workshop scholars. These workshops focus on a variety of areas such as stress management, time management, presentation and writing skills, test-taking skills, and reading and organizing literature information skills.

CLAS Workshops Scholars

The Geno A. Ballotti Scholarship recognizes and is awarded to students who demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in learning and academic support. Ballotti Scholars are proactive student leaders and role models in addition to being peer tutors, study group leaders, and academic workshop facilitators. The CLAS Workshop Scholars develop and lead academic skills workshops both in classes and at the CLAS and aid in the development of supplemental materials such as handouts and online workshop videos.
