Our Student Success Seminars are designed to help students strengthen their academic skills so they can become better learners and achieve academic success. Some of our seminar topics include:
Students who attend academic seminars earn one-tenth (.1) of a Continuing Education Credit (CEU) for every seminar attended. If students attend 10 seminars, they will have earned one (1) CEU, along with a Student Success Seminars Training Certificate. Additionally, many professors at Macomb offer extra credit to encourage students to attend. Our faculty understand the need for our students to acquire effective study skills, and they feel that it is worth offering an extra incentive for attending. It is definitely a “win-win” opportunity for Macomb students.
Here is what our students are saying about the Student Success Seminars:
“The seminar was great and the information that I learned is very useful.”
“I learned new ways to read a textbook to help retain info, which was great information that I believe will help me out a lot.”
“I enjoyed attending this seminar. It is not something that I would normally participate in, but I feel better prepared.”
“I used Smart Cards to study for my last test and I got an A on it…it really worked!”
