Free student success workshops available to students


By Kamilah Shepherd – Collegiate Staff

Throughout the fall and winter semesters the Counseling and Career Center at Grand Rapids Community College offers free workshops to their students.

Since the early ‘90s, according to workshop coordinator Fred Zomer, GRCC students have had the opportunity to attend workshops throughout the semester.

The hour-long meetings vary from topics such as academic, personal and financial planning, academic skills, and personal and relationship development.

Whether you’re looking for some financial aid advice, exam skills, or parenting advice, there is something there for you.

The workshops take place in room 327 on the third floor of the Student Center next to the Counseling and Career Center. Students can look forward to upcoming topics such as, stress relief, body image, study skills, study abroad, career planning, and more.

“It’s good information, so we want to keep running them,” Zomer said. “We would love to have 20-30 students come out.”

At the end of each workshop, the students in attendance are asked if there are any other workshops they would like to see or any suggestions they would like to make.

The next workshop, Overcoming Procrastination will be held in room 327 on the third floor of the Student Center on October 6 from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Students who wait until the last minute to get things done will learn how to break that bad habit and get things done.
