WISH Program Online

WISH (Workshops In Studying Here at SMCC) are half hour workshops on college success and study skills. This semester we're trying something new and holding face-to-face WISH workshops by appointment only.

They'll still take a half hour and they'll still cover the success skills you're hoping to learn - they just won't be happening as "drop-ins." If you would like to schedule a WISH consultation for yourself, or even a small study group, please see the Tutoring Front Desk or call 741-5535.
