This annual conference is designed for both new and returning students who are looking to be inspired and equipped with strategies to be successful both inside and outside of the classroom. The program includes motivational speakers, sessions on topics related to your academic and personal success, and a faculty panel to answer your questions and provide you with tips on how to work with college instructors. Refreshments will be provided. Raffle prizes will be awarded. Space is limited - register early!

Prepare. Study. Connect.

The Succeed at CLC Program, in partnership with the college community, is determined to work with students to do whatever is necessary to help them reach their educational potential. The Succeed at CLC Program is open to all students. We offer three categories of programming:


Mini Workshops on topics related to academic success are offered in a 50-minute format. Some sessions are paired with Study Zone sessions; others are held separately. Examples of topics include “Improve Your Note –Taking Skills,” “Study Smarter,” Undecided? Exploring Careers and Choosing a Major” and “Making the Most of Your Math Class.”   Presentations are developed to respond to student requests.

Leadership Series begins in October

Study Zones are open to all CLC students. They are daily study sessions held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Grayslake Campus Library’s Esper Peterson Reading Room (area behind the art gallery) and they offer a focused, friendly study environment that includes access to laptop computers and easy access to the Tutoring Center. In order to aid in the promotion of good study habits, Study Zone attendees are also entered into our monthly drawing for a laptop computer.


Connect Events provide opportunities to meet new people, network and participate in activities that help move one closer to his/her educational, career and personal goals. They include Transfer College Fairs and Job Fairs.
