Training for Academic Success

Course Goals

This course aims to direct you — as the title suggests — in your training for academic success. It will do this by:

  • Helping you recognize your capacities and strengths.
  • Helping you identify and overcome any mental blocks that may stand in the way of your success.
  • Helping you identify some of the skills that will support your achieving academic success, including time–management, writing, note taking, and discussion.
  • Perhaps most importantly, this course will help you identify the specific steps you as a learner need to take to achieve academic success.
  • Overarching goal: As a student-athlete at Earlham, you will learn to apply the same level of discipline and commitment to your academic life as you do to perfecting your craft as an athlete.
