Value-Added Opportunities
SUccess Series:

CSTEP’s holistic approach equips first-year students for a positive SU experience. The SUccess Series offers free seminars that are designed to give students an early academic edge. During these seminars, faculty, administrators and students lead group discussions that promote academic excellence and personal development.

  • Peer Led Team Learning:

    CSTEP students can engage in supplemental learning sessions that strengthen their conceptual understanding of rigorous courses such as organic chemistry.
