Get support in reaching your goals

Many students struggle with focus and procrastination, time management and goal setting. All of these can have a negative impact on your academic success, but making Study Hubs part of your weekly schedule can help! Join us to find support as you complete readings, work on assignments and prepare for tests and exams.

Academic Success has partnered with various groups across the St. George campus to support all of our diverse students’ needs. Everyone is welcome to join these supportive communities: we hope to see you there!

How they work

After your class schedules settle, you can find Study Hubs occuring every week all around the St George campus. Find your community and meet with them at the time and place that works best for you. No registration is necessary! 

At the beginning of each session, a student peer mentor will help you set an achievable study goal for the next two hours. Whether you have regular homework, lots of readings, or a major upcoming project or test, setting SMART goals can be highly effective. Our mentors have useful academic resources on hand in case you need them.

Making the Study Hubs part of your regular week can help you find your focus and stay on track. Plus, attendance can count towards becoming a Community Contributor on the Co-Curricular Record once you attend six or more sessions and write a brief personal reflection. Why study alone when you can study with friend? 

With a cup of tea and some snacks, you might be pleasantly surprised about how much you can get done in two hours of quiet study time!
