Without the CAS, I probably would have gotten a C in Chem 1201. When you stressed how important it was to preview and review and study 2 hours a day or so, I was in shock, but I followed the guideline and got myself an A.

I have discovered the Math Tutoring Center this semester. I really want to thank you and all the staff for all the hard work and dedication that I received. Everyone has been great and supportive at some of my most stressed days. Thanks to you and the staff I am certain I will end up with an A in Calc 1550.

The methods and information that I gained at the CAS completely changed the way I learn and how I study.

I no longer panic at test time and am confident in the material that I have studied.

While talking to the [CAS Consultant], I didn't feel like 'just another number at LSU', but an individual. She helped me feel confident about being a freshman and that I could be successful. Her advice, visual descriptions, and services will completely change how I view my experience here. I know that I can do it now!

The different levels of studying were very intriguing. I realized that my studying needed to go to the next level. [The CAS Consultant] was very motivating and I will take her advice to ace my exams.

[The CAS Consultant] was not there just to give me tips. She really helped me learn and understand what I needed to do to prepare in advance.

I felt encouraged, motivated, and willing to go beyond my routine.

Hi! I graduated from LSU in December 2005 and just wanted to say that I still come back to the CAS website on LSU's website each year to get the Weekly Planner pdf. I am in grad school now in Tennessee and my school does not offer the weekly planner sheet so I've managed to print it each year and spread the word to all of my classmates here. Hooray for LSU and the CAS center!

I took Calculus 1550 during the Spring of my Freshman year. I had a hard time understanding a lot of the problems because I hadn't taken math for two years...I had to take a W by the end of the semester...Fall of my Sophomore year, I was told about the CAS tutoring center...I go there to do all my homework and studying...My studying takes 1/2 the time it used to and the best part is I have a much better grade in the class...I would never have made it through Calculus 1550 without the CAS...THANKS CAS!

I had a great tutor from CAS. I have always been terrible at Biology but got a 96 on my first 1001 test!

The tutoring center helped me out very much. It helped me finish my webwork and I learned a lot.
- Freshman Student
I've been using some of the tools we discussed and it seems to be helping a ton! I got a 95 on my last biology test, and I had a chemistry test today. It was tricky, but I didn't freak out in the middle like usual. Thanks so much for your help!!
- Sophomore Student
I got a 4.0 this semester! Thanks so much for all of your help...I really appreciate it!!!

I never had problems making good grades in high school but I really struggled with adapting to college my first semester and started off with a 1.5 GPA. I was skeptical about going to a CAS consultation but decided it was worth a try. It turns out that [the consultant] really wanted to help me do better and gave me little tips that made a big difference in my study habits. I definitely think going to CAS and having a consultation had a major impact on my getting a 3.8 this semester!

I was able to tackle my homework with confidence knowing that when I run into difficulty there is a tutor to help me and in most cases, I have a classmate to share what I have just learned with. Programs like CAS in my opinion really help with student retention and success - reason being that a student that is failing a class is more likely to drop the class or even drop out of the university. But with effective tutoring programs, many students will be retained and proceed to graduate from their field of study.

After my first semester at LSU I was completely devastated. I left high school with a 4.1 GPA and … I never had to study too much. After my first wave of exams I was extremely frustrated and stressed by my poor performance … and ended the semester with a 1.6 GPA … I completed the CAS online workshops and realized my mistakes. I went to the CAS seminar and attended all the workshops on campus. It wasn't a change that happened over night, but … The next semester I made a 3.8 and the Dean’s List. I also had my TOPS back! CAS covered all the areas that I was struggling with: stress/anxiety, how to take test, etc. The CAS resources made me excited and optimistic about school again. I would advise any freshman to explore the workshops. It can make a difference on how you perform academically.
