ACAD 1100  Academic Strategies

OPEN TO FRESHMEN ONLY

Fall 2013 

 

ACAD 1100-Academic Strategies  is a course designed to teach students the academic strategies needed to be successful as a college student at the University of Memphis.  Students in this class learn and practically apply key strategies such as: Note-taking, self-management, reading, test-taking, writing papers, study strategies, choosing a major, and choosing a career.  If you think these are things that can help you in your first semester at the University of Memphis, then enroll in a section during your first semester.
