What students have to say about the Center for Academic Success:

"CAS really gave me a great foundation on which to build my academic career. By using the 'professional student' approach of treating school like a 9 to 5 job, I was really able to manage my school priorities, extracurricular activities, and social life. Another great skill I still use frequently is the levels of understanding and studying. It has really helped me make the most out of studying and has given me the best results in learning and comprehending my class material."

MikanaScott"During my undergrad at LSU I definitely credited my academic success to the wonderful advice and information I received from sessions with the Center. I'm reaching out because I will be starting a PhD program at Temple University in African American Studies in the Fall semester and I just wanted to extend my sincere appreciation once again to you and for the Center's services. After receiving my Master's degree in 2014, I took a break from school and have been working full time back home (in the Cayman Islands). However during this past year I've become involved in a mentoring program. I was able to assist my mentee during her last year of high school exams by providing a study schedule, helping her get organized, and even discussing the study cycle and strategies to improve learning with her (much of that based upon information I received from CAS). As I begin the PhD program in August, not only will I be taking classes, but I will be teaching in the Fall semester as well. I have no doubt that my understanding and utilization of learning strategies with students will be influenced from all of the information I received from CAS many years ago. As I prepare for a career in academia, I just wanted to thank you once again for the important work that you (and CAS) do."
