Rapid Learning Drop-In

Rapid Leaning Dropin Logo

“15 minutes Can Change Your Life”

Nontraditional students have unique constraints on their personal resources and time, and typically prefer information delivered in succinct manner. Taking these factors into consideration, the Access & Diversity Center in partnership with the Academic Resource Center created Rapid Learning Drop–In to provide ongoing opportunities for nontraditional students to recharge, socialize with other nontraditional students, and connect to relevant campus offices and expertise, all in as little as 10–15 minutes.

How it Works

Drop–In sessions occur twice per month, Wednesdays at (11:30 am – 12:30 pm). Each session features a topic which is delivered in 15 min (or less), and is repeated three times during the Drop-In session. Students are welcome to come and stay for the full two hours, or stop by for just a few minutes. Additional features of these sessions include handouts on the day’s topic, access to information on additional campus and community resources, as well as opportunities to connect to other nontraditional students and the Nontraditional Program Coordinator.

Drop-In sessions are held in the Access & Diversity Center TSC 315 Lounge, in an effort to highlight spaces available for nontraditional student use.
