Make It Your Own

If you're looking for academic resources and/or advice about how to succeed at Carroll, we offer a variety of workshops that you can request for friends, student organization, or yourself. Once you fill out a Workshops on Demand request form and return it to the Academic Resources Desk (in the Learning Commons) we create a workshop based on your needs and around your schedule.

Additionally, we offer several workshops through the Writing Center. For a list of those workshop titles, dates, and times, please check back.
