Study Hubs are scheduled times for you to set and meet your studying goals. Quiet, welcoming spaces allow you to complete readings, work on assignments and prepare for tests and exams.
All undergraduate and graduate students
How The Program Works
Study Hubs have gone virtual during COVID-19. A full list of Study Hubs can be found on the Academic Success Events & Workshops calendar on CLNx, so please check them out. We hope you’ll come join us!
At the beginning of each Zoom session, a student peer mentor will help you set an achievable study goal for the next two hours. No matter what you have to do, setting SMART goals can be highly effective. Our mentors have useful academic resources on hand in case you need them.
Attendance can count toward CCR recognition once you attend at least six sessions and write a brief personal reflection. Reflections are collected through the CLNx program tracker: when you log in to CLNx, go to the “Programs I’m registered in” tab and click into the Study Hubs program for the term. Within the Events task, click “add this” for six or more of the Hubs you attended in order to access the second task module that allows you to share your reflection.
Lead a Study Hub
If you would like to become a peer mentor with the virtual Study Hubs this summer, we are offering online training sessions. Find the schedule on the Academic Success Events & Workshops calendar on CLNx. You will be able to facilitate sessions on your own schedule, so you can do your own work and support other students at the same time!
If there are no training sessions on the calendar that work for your schedule, please contact Jonathan Vandor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve run eleven or more Study Hubs and written a brief personal reflection on your experience, you’ll be eligible for Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognition. These reflections are collected though an online form that will be sent by email after your eleventh Hub.
What Students Are Saying15 votes
I found that the Study Hubs were very helpful in holding me accountable for staying on top of my school work despite losing motivation due to school and exams moving online. I love how supportive everyone is: it is motivating to know everybody is in this together and working hard to get their work done.
I felt quite unmotivated and stressed with remote learning. I had a lot of school work piling up and was getting distracted at home. I want to give school my best, and felt like joining a community of students would be helpful. Attending the virtual Study Hubs, I was reminded how to set SMART goals and how to be kind to myself. I set small goals that I wanted to achieve in the next two hours and then just turned off all distractions. Some times I reached my goals and sometimes I did not. However, I felt a little less alone while studying.
I'm glad to be a part of the virtual Study Hubs: it has helped me in all different ways. Study Hubs not only helped me to be productive but also helped me in improving my communication skills with others. As an international student, sometimes it's really hard to be confident in front of native English speakers but the Study Hubs also boosted my confidence.
