The Student Success Peer Learning Workshop Series kicks off on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 5:15 p.m. in the World Languages & Digital Humanities Studio, located in JBHT 207. The series is composed of three one-hour, student-led workshops (Oct. 26, Nov. 3 and Nov. 10) focusing on how to successfully study world languages and cultures. 

Each workshop is designed for undergraduate students to share their knowledge and helpful tips with other students who are studying a world language. Student workshop leaders have been working with Student Success coaches Claudia Devich (instructor, German and Italian), Louise Cole (instructor, Spanish) and Curtis Maughan (director, World Languages and Digital Humanities Studio) to create their presentations to share with fellow Razorbacks.
