Study Strategies

"The art of true memory is the art of attention." - Samuel Johnson

Students develop and apply strategies in conjunction with current courses, assessing their progress through the techniques taught to them in Gervais Learning Center sessions. Study strategies include the following:

  • Time management
  • Setting goals
  • Textbook reading and note taking
  • Lecture note taking
  • Test preparation
  • Test taking

The Gervais Learning Center staff can also create workshops for Rockhurst students. These workshops focus on strategies that ensure success in the college classroom: getting organized, analyzing academic achievement, and generating appropriate strategies for maximizing performance.
