Student Success Seminars

Students have the opportunity to refresh important concepts, to get their brain in shape for the upcoming semester, and to meet other students and mathematics professors. The goal of the Student Success Seminars (S3) at SCC is to prepare students for their math classes and increase readiness for the semester. These seminars are helpful for  general math knowledge as well as specific class knowledge.

Who:      Transfer-level math students (especially STEM students!) are welcome to attend any or all seminars.
When:    Aug 15-17, 2016
Where:   Rooms H-236, H-237, H-238
