About PD 100

PD 100 explores practical strategies for empowering students to become active, responsible and lifelong learners. To achieve college success, students first need to take an active role in securing their educational success on three levels. First, by addressing behaviors/emotions that impede one from achieving your academic goals. Second, by using the student services offered at SBCC. Third, by acquiring the academic skills necessary for one to be successful in the classroom. Instructor:  Jason R. Suárez Office: N/A Office Hours: Before class / by appointment
