RESOURCES FOR SUCCESS

Spring semester is now in full swing and your student may have identified a challenging course or two. One of the best pieces of advice a parent can give to support their student’s success is “Use the campus resources available to you.” Have you given that gentle nudge? If your student is not doing well, there’s still time for a course adjustment. Encourage your student to get back on track by meeting with a professor and seeking tutoring or other academic assistance.  The no-cost resources include various tutoring services including: Tutoring Center, Math Lab, Writing Center, and Reading Clinic.

NEW TRAVEL ABROAD OPPORTUNITY

Does your student want to expand horizons through travel? Cal U’s Office of International Programming, in conjunction with the Turkish Cultural Center of Pittsburgh and under the guidance of associate professor Dr. Ali Sezer, will offer a trip to Turkey this June. The trip will introduce students to the Turkish people, their history and culture, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. This remarkable opportunity is offered at a special price ONLY for Cal U students. Learn more
