BCLA Workshops and Group Advising

BCLA Workshops & Group Advising

The BCLA Advising Center provides students with the opportunity to take part in hands-on workshops and group advising sessions to help students to succeed in their academic journey at LMU. Workshops are multi-faceted, covering topics such as student skill assessment, how to select appropriate classes, and ways to engage in meaningful academic experiences.

  • These workshops cover effective study techniques, note-taking tips, reading skills, test-taking tips, mitigating procrastination, managing stress, creating and managing your schedule, as well as introducing various resources on campus. We also do specific outreach to at-risk students such as those on Academic Probation, and those that received mid-term deficiencies.

    Workshop Resources:


  • Seeking clarification on course material or aiming to establish a stronger rapport with your professors? This video provides guidance on attending professors' office hours. It covers what to prepare beforehand, offers tips on making the most of your visit, and explains the proper etiquette for students who may be unsure about how to navigate office hours effectively.


  • First-year students who began at LMU in Fall 2022 are required to complete a Registration Workshop. If you started in Spring 2022 and attended a session last semester, this is not required for you, and instead, you must meet with your assigned faculty advisor to discuss schedule planning and major progress. If you are a first year student, you'll be able to access the workshop here
