Did you know that the University of Dallas has over 200 hours of free tutoring, a writing lab open six days/week, and a full-time Academic Success Office dedicated to maximizing student success? More importantly, does your son or daughter know?
If your UD student is challenged by a particular assignment or the academic workload in general, please share with them the following:
The University of Dallas offers tutoring in Biology, Business, Chemistry, Economics, History, Math, Modern Languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish), Philosophy and Physics, and hours and locations can be found here. If your son or daughter needs information on how to seek tutoring, consider sharing the Tutoring Tips to help them decide why tutoring might work for them and encourage them to give it a try.
The Writing Lab takes students by appointment to offer suggestions on how to write papers that meet faculty expectations and help students gain more from each assignment. More information about the Writing Lab is available at this link.
Our full-time Academic Success Advisor Brandon Jones can help students build a strong foundation for their studies, enhancing time management and study skills and ultimately helping them take charge of their academic success. Brandon can be found in Augustine 114, or contact at 972-721-5056 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If general adjustment to life at UD is becoming a challenge and your student is not sure where to start, encourage that they talk to their advisor, professor or to one of the associate deans (Dr. Brown Marsden, Associate Dean, Constantin College, email@example.com or Dr. Nancy Schreiber, Associate Dean, College of Business, firstname.lastname@example.org).
As professors we care very much about what we teach, and about whether what we do in the classroom resonates with our students. Most importantly, we want them to understand and not feel overwhelmed by the material, so as much as we all can do to get them in touch with the resources that might helpful the better their college experience will be.
Thank you for letting us teach your students—we enjoy having them in classes, and as a part of the university!
Dr. Marcy Brown Marsden
Associate Dean, Constantin College
