Academic Resources

study skills

Cook Counseling Center is dedicated to aiding students in achieving a successful college career. While mental health and counseling services are Cook Counseling Center’s main focus, academic support for students is one of its main priorities.

In this capacity, the counseling center provides workshops that focus on specific, academic related issues, such as stress management and test anxiety; and information on how to improve study skills, including time management tips and concentration techniques. Cook Counseling Center also provides information on graduate school testing.

Academic support covers many different aspects of academic success, but it also includes academic relief. Cook Counseling Center works with students whose college success has been hindered by mental illness or great mental stress. In this area, students experiencing these kinds of troubles can find more information on academic relief.
