An open house sponsored by Academic Support Programs, which is part of the Center for Student Achievement and Freshman Experience, and Developmental Studies, a program run by the Marshal’s Office, is scheduled to 14 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday (September 22). Participants are invited to meet staff and graduate students and tour the program’s new facilities at Johnson Commons East.

Academic Support Programs also offers a Coffee with a Coach, scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on October 8 at Johnson Commons East, Room 112E. This event introduces first year students to the Success Coaching program.
