Skill Builder teaches motivation

Students who are tired of wasting time or are having a difficult time getting motivated can find use in the upcoming Skill Builder, “Attitude, Motivation and Time Management.” The Skill Builder will be hosted by Ken Culp in the Back Room of the University Center on Nov. 12, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Culp is an adjunct mathematics and computer science professor who has done extensive research on the topic. “Many students arrive on campus without concrete goals or objectives and have trouble succeeding,” Culp said, adding the seminar will be most helpful to new students, but can really benefit anyone. The Skill Builder will begin by assessing where students are going with their education and will then focus on time management. It will also focus on managing a schedule, establishing personal values, mission statements and goals, said Culp. This Skill Builder is free to attend and students who are interested should call 227-1771 to register, or send an e-mail to [email protected]. Culp said he is also willing to give this seminar to groups of five or more to students at different times throughout the semester. Students should contact Culp for more information if they are interested in having him meet with their group or organization.
