The Academic Advantage Series: Workshops for Success is a series of presentations designed to help students succeed academically. The presentations focus on skills that professors expect students to know but that might not have been learned over the course of a student's academic career. Each session provides hands-on, expert instruction from professionals at WKU who are dedicated to student success and to seeing all WKU students graduate.
