Student Success Workshops

On Track collaborates to offer a variety of workshops throughout the semester that help students develop and maintain the essential skills that are integral to being a successful student. Although all Moody College of Communication students are invited to attend the workshops, some students may be required to do so by the Student Success Coordinator.

If none of the listed workshops work with your schedule or don't seem as if they would be of benefit to you, participants in the Comm Back on Track (CBOT) and CBOT Academic Progress Plan (APP) may choose to visit one of the following campus resources instead, or talk to your academic advisor about other options:

University Writing Center: http://uwc.utexas.edu/
Public Speaking Center: http://ugs.utexas.edu/slc/support/speaking-center

Be sure to use the Campus Resource Visit Form in your handbook; get it signed and turn it in to your advisor to receive appropriate credit for the visit.
