Summer 2021 Prep for Fall Success EdTALKS (Formerly Known as "Student Success Seminars")

We know it is important for students to feel as prepared as possible for their college experience. If you are planning to take online courses during the Fall 2021 semester, we recommend participating in at least one of our pre-semester Canvas 101 EdTALKS, co-hosted by Eddy the Eagle and Peer Tutor and online student extraordinaire, Miranda Connelly. These 1-hour talks will provide you with the online course knowledge and confidence you need to dive into your courses come Fall.
