The Secret to Success workshop Sept. 16 on South Campus featured success coach Elvis Martinez who emphasized five foundational habits that successful college students should practice.

Martinez discussed registering for the right classes, meeting with their academic adviser, engaging in campus activities, recognizing their learning style and introducing themselves to their instructor.

“Keep in mind TCC has a lot of resources including tutoring labs, the online Connect Campus and more,” Martinez said. “We just need our students to let us know what we can help with.”

Success coach Cindy Dorton said the goal of the event is to provide students with practical information to help ensure their overall academic success.

“Part of being a student-ready and student-engaged college is addressing the unique needs of a diverse student body and supporting them both inside and outside of the classroom,” Dorton said. “Hopefully, that’s what students will find when they attend one of our Success Workshops.”

South student Christopher Le said he would use the tips that Martinez talked about, including contacting academic advisers and getting involved.

“The most important thing I took away from this is knowing how to actively participate and use the resources that TCC has to offer,” Le said. “They have a ton of opportunities that a lot of students don’t know about.”
