Doing well in college isn’t just about being smart; it’s also about having the necessary skills to record, organize, recall, and use information. These skills include note-taking, note-making (there is a difference!), textbook reading, asking questions, exam preparation, and time management. Like any other skill, study skills are learned and can be improved. Students who are skilled studiers do well because they have developed useful and effective strategies for the different kinds of work they need to perform as a student, and because they know that the strategies needed for one class may be different than for another class, they are careful to make adjustments from course to course, professor to professor, and exam to exam.

All writers benefit from individualized attention to their writing and their writing process. For this reason, the Pace Writing Centers work with all writers at any stage of the writing process. Their free writing consultations offer writers individualized support as they negotiate the demands that press upon any genre of writing.
Currently, you can schedule virtual consultations in 25-minute blocks during their office hours. These meet-ups are conducted by expert Writing Center consultants entirely online, and they are intended to give writers the greatest possible benefit by following the purpose and model of the Writing Center’s in-person consultations.
