NW to hold Success Conference

By Haneen Khatib/nw news editor

NW Campus will host its fifth annual Student Success Conference 8 a.m.-noon Sept. 13-14 in WSTU 1303-1305.

Blair Johnson, a former TCC student and a NW counselor, will be the keynote speaker.

“We hope to have a variety of different courses for students to see that being in college can be successful,” said Cassandra Mackie, librarian and conference chair.

The conference will help students better themselves for educational purposes, Mackie said. 

Students can choose from 15 workshops. Each course covers a specific subject, Mackie said, such as time management, stress management, ABC’s of math, dance and PowerPoint. Students can take all the courses or just one.

“Backpacks and Briefcase is to help students write résumés, cover letters and thank you notes,” she said. “Dance is a hip-hop workshop geared toward non-dancers.”

The student success program also has courses to help with the use of PowerPoint and Accuplacer.

“PowerPoint is designed to teach beginning college students who are not familiar with the program,” she said.

Mackie also mentioned the Accuplacer course, which helps students improve their scores on the placement test.

The conference’s goal is to “let students know they can be successful and give them these courses to help,” she said.

Snacks, drinks and prizes will be available on both days of the conference. Lunch will also be served during the keynote address on the 14th.

Students interested in attending the conference can register online by going to WebAdvisor and selecting GENX-750-30003, synonym 0227306. On Sept. 13-14, students can check in or register in the WTLO lobby.
