 Peers Help ECS Students Master Course Material in Academic Excellence Workshops

February 28, 2019

The Academic Excellence Workshops (AEW) are geared toward achieving success in courses in engineering and math. AEW sessions are peer-facilitated, one-credit, pass/fail courses designed to supplement the instruction in many first and second year courses. Students are able to register for these classes during the course add period via MySlice.

Participants not only leave with superb understanding of the material, but also with new organizational, interpersonal, and leadership skills. The Academic Excellence Workshop is an excellent opportunity to meet your peers and establish new study groups as you learn essential course material.

“It is your peers helping you master core subjects,” said Drew Jacobson ’19.

“The sessions are run by students who have taken the courses before so they definitely have had the professors who are teaching the current session,” said Jackie Cheung ’18. “AEW definitely opens up communication, it opens up a path for academic success.”

“It was nice to be in these settings and then take it to an exam and not feel the same stresses before I was taking an AEW in this class,” said Sherrod Klerge ’18.
