GSU Star

Mastering the skills to be a successful student can be a difficult task. The Academic Resource Center (ARC) recognizes that students struggle in various skill sets and need help strengthening those skills. Some students may find that what may have worked in high school is not cutting it in college. The ARC is here to assist students with their individual challenges and help them achieve academic success.

In the drop boxes below, you will find various tools such as study skills, tips, techniques, and resources to promote your overall learning and study skills.  Whether you have a challenge with concentration or just need to assess your study environment, the Academic Resource Center has provided resources to assist.
