During the semester, counselors offer various SkillsShops for students to improve the skills they need to be successful in college and in life. These events are free for all currently enrolled full- and part-time students.

Online SkillsShops

We have made some of our SkillsShops available online for students to complete on their own, or by referral from an instructor. Please visit the Resources and Links section to learn more about our Online SkillsShops.
