Feeling challenged by test preparation? We've got strategies for that. Not sure what to do when your instructor talks fast? We can help. Need a tool to get a better sense for your term and how big assignments coincide with each other, with other exams, with social engagements? Here's one.

And, while we know it's great to be able to do the investigation on your own, know that we have trained Academic Coaches who are ready to meet with you and talk through any of this information, or what you're experiencing in your courses. Watch a video about Academic Coaching to see if it's the next step you're looking for. Then, schedule an appointment online, or call 541-737-2272 to start working with a coach now.

Not sure what you're looking for? Navigate to our Where Do I Start page and answer some questions. Based on your answers, we'll suggest some strategies and tools to use. You can check those out and use them to begin a more in-depth exploration of the Learning Corner.

Thanks for visiting, happy learning, and know that we're looking forward to being a part of your learning process and college experience, so be in touch!
