Study Smart!

"Knowing is not enough; We must apply. Willing is not enough; We must do." –Bruce Lee

At the Center for Academic Excellence we believe that a South Alabama student can learn anything given the proper resources and mindset. 

Study Smart

Study Smart was developed due to strong student interest to engage in peer-led online study groups. During the guided sessions, we utilize a proven method to retain more information. These short, intense bursts of study in a distraction-free environment follow the plan below:

Goal setting (5 minutes)
Intense study session (40 minutes)
Break (10 minutes)
Review (5 minutes)
