Registration for Study Skills Course Continues
The Effective Learning for College Success course at Penn State York is open for registration. This course is designed to help students improve their learning and studying skills.

The course, held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, is geared for college students who want to improve their skills.
