College students often need a little help with their studies, especially in the first semester transition from high school. The role of Dawson’s Academic Skills Centre is to help students improve their learning, reading and writing skills. Students can meet with education advisors and tutors on an individual basis, or in small groups and workshops.
The Academic Skills Centre is located in 6D.2 (in the library).
