Success Series

If students attend four Success Series sessions, they will get an EMU sweatshirt and bag of EMU goodies. If students attend three Success Series sessions, they will win a bag of EMU goodies.

Success Series: Academic Success

Studying in a different culture can be challenging. Come and connect with senior students while learning coping skills. An academic advisor will be present and answer all your questions.

Success Series: Be Healthy!

Coming to a new culture can be very exciting, but it can also leave us confused when trying to understand new ways of doing things and interacting with other students. Learn about ways of adjusting to the U.S. culture. As a student, it is very important to be health- physically, mentally and emotionally. Healthy emotional and social adjustment lead to better academic performance. Take a tour of the Snow Health Center and learn about Caps, the Wellness Center and University Health Services.

Success Series: Communication Coaching

Not knowing how to get your points across? Communication is an art, so don't be frustrated. Learn how to communicate effectively in the classroom, with Americans and in the community.
