Toolkit for Student Success

This toolkit is to help freshman and existing students become more successful students. The tools have been gathered to help with non-subject specific skills that students should have to be able to excel in any class. If you need further assistance outside of these online resources and workshops, please contact our office. You can contact our office by phone at 513-785-3139, by email at, or come to our office in Rentschler Hall, room 102.
