Even though the semester is winding down, it might not be easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This can be especially true if you’ve received midterm grades that did not meet your expectations or you’re anxious about looming final exams. And don’t forget about the upcoming holidays which can cause even the calmest people a lot of stress! But don't worry, JJC offers resources to help you excel in your classes and minimize stress.
Here are four free resources all students can use to find success in the classroom:
1. Student Advising Center
The Student Advising Center (SAC) can provide academic advising support in the form of individual and group advising appointments and web advising. The advisors will give you a support plan to help you stay on track, access to programs that will help you adjust to college and academic coaching. The SAC is located at the Main Campus in room A-1155 or at the Romeoville Campus in room RMA-1029. You can find out more about the SAC on its webpage.
