USask has cancelled all non-essential programming for the remainder of term due to reasonable concerns related to COVID-19, and that includes the final Cultivating Your Success workshop, which was scheduled to take place on March 26.

If you have questions related to your academic success or would like an online one-to-one consultation, please email joel.fonstad@usask.ca.

In the meantime, please see the Student Learning Services Study Skills Guide for online resources on a variety of academic and study skills topics.

AgBio Student Services is proud to partner with the University Library's Student Learning Services to offer a series of workshops specially designed to help AgBio students meet their academic potential. If you experienced a difficult fall term and need to improve, these workshops are for you! 

Each workshop takes place right here in the Agriculture building in Ag 1E80 and will be led by a peer mentor who is also an upper year AgBio student. This is your chance to improve your study skills, set goals you can meet, manage your time better, and more! 

AgBio students who attend at least 3 'Cultivating Your Success' workshops and meet with Peer Mentor Dave for at least 1 one-to-one consultation will receive recognition on their Co-Curricular Record transcript!
