  • Learning study skills
  • Managing stress and text anxiety
  • Developing critical thinking skills
  • Creating great presentations
  • Building financial literacy skills
  • Writing and citing skills
  • Building your résumé and cover letter
  • Dealing with challenging topics, including self-esteem, mental and emotional well-being, and stress

Loyalist College provides a range of excellent services for students in a variety of different areas. You'll find links to those services throughout this guide; just look for Services @ Loyalist.
