University College launches online student forum
University College launches online student forumApril 14, 2005Matthew R. Snydermrsnyder@syr.edu
University College has created a new opportunity for busy part-time students to connect with each other and their advisors: UC Connections. This online community forum is designed specifically for adult students who juggle many different responsibilities while studying at SU through University College. UC Connections is a meeting place for sharing ideas and suggestions and receiving encouragement and inspiration. For students who need to prioritize tasks, sharpen their study skills and improve time management techniques, links to study aids can also be found at UC Connections.
For five hours each week, University College academic advisors will be live online to answer questions and offer advice. Students can connect with an academic advisor on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 7-8 p.m., Tuesday mornings from 10-11 a.m., and Thursday afternoons from 3-4 p.m.
To access UC Connections, visit http://uconline.syr.edu and follow the prompts to log on. For more information about UC Connections, contact UC Academic Advisor Emileen Butler at 443-3261.
