Workshops


The English Center offers workshops throughout the semester on a variety of topics to assist language learners in college. We encourage students across the curriculum at S.D. City College to attend.

   
Spring 2017 Workshops: 

"WHY & HOW to be a College Student" Workshop

WHY do you do WHAT you do? HOW do you bring your passion to life? Being a college student can become disconnected from our life purposes. A clear passion is needed. Sometimes we know Why... but How to bring that passion to life becomes frustrating and inconsistent. This interactive workshop will offer key ideas and historical examples to guide you towards clarifying the “WHY and HOW” in your educational plan and even your personal life too!
