Student Workshops

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 are open to all students, and 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.
