Student Academic Success Services offers academic support to students who wish to develop their skills in critical thinking, reading, learning, studying, writing, and self-management. We welcome Queen’s undergraduate and graduate students at all stages of program completion and all levels of ability.
We offer individual appointments to enhance students’ academic skills and self-management strategies, support for English Language Learners, workshops and presentations, outreach events, and comprehensive online resources covering both Learning Resources and Writing Resources, including ways to:
- improve your time management and organize assignment completion,
- increase motivation and reduce procrastination,
- cope with distractions,
- better your study skills and habits, and
- Improve your writing (e.g., thesis statements, effective paragraph structure, grammar, etc.).
Our upper-year volunteers, the SASS Peers (PLAs and PWAs), also post a weekly blog during the fall and winter terms. Check out our archives for candid, helpful (and often funny!) posts on surviving and thriving as a Queen’s student.
