R'Success Workshop Series
are on a drop-in basis and “first-come, first served.” The workshop series covers a variety of study and life skills topics with each workshop offered several times each quarter. If you’re looking for ways to strengthen your study habits and time management skills, you’ve come to the right place.
Every term, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers a series of study skills workshops, which are free of charge for registered UCR students. We encourage students to attend as many workshops as needed and then to visit with our peer mentors and professional staff for feedback and reflection on study skills development. R'Success provides students the flexibility to choose workshop sessions on various study and life skills workshops that align with their individual interests and schedule. Workshops for Fall 2021 will be held remotely and in-person.
In-person at the ARC or remotely through Zoom. For instructions on how to register for an R'Success Workshop, click on the 'Workshop Schedule' tab below
