ACES
Academic Coaching & Educational Support

The ACES (Academic Coaching & Educational Support) program is comprised of a group of students who are eager to achieve their definitions of academic success  In this four week series led by Kara Uhrich, Director of the Center for Academic Success, you will identify steps to reach your academic goals, enhance your study skills, and learn from fellow cohort members.  Sessions will provide time for reflection, an interactive activity based on the week's topic, and space for you to share about successful academic strategies.

Ultimately, we hope to provide you with a group to keep you accountable in a comfortable, relaxed environment for students who want to achieve their potential.
