For the eighth year, the College will host an Academic Skills and Strategies Workshop series, which aims to teach students effective study techniques and methods.Senior Fiona Van Antwerp said she implemented many of the strategies she learned through the Academic Skills and Strategies program. Accordingly, she has noticed a significant difference in the quality of her work.“I learned so many important skills about how to study and compile information and how to budget my time and how to ask the right questions,” Van Antwerp said.The series is run by the director of the Office for Student Success, Diane Fox, who said she hopes the program helps students to not only learn the proper skills and techniques for earning the best grades possible, but also to maintain academic consistency throughout the semester.“There are five topics offered in this year’s series,” she said. “All workshops are 30 minutes long, and each topic is offered at least three different times so that students may choose a time that is most convenient with their schedules.”Fox said her goal is to always find new information and strategies tailored to the different personalities of each student, since creating a personal study plan can be a new skill for students seeking ways to improve their performance.Van Antwerp said she discovers something new in each workshop.“Every workshop is drastically different, so the information and techniques you acquire from one workshop isn’t necessarily the same as what you learned the last time,” she said. “Sometimes I’ve experienced that I even pick up on the same concept differently each time.”Van Antwerp said these workshops benefit students from all majors, so she hopes everyone will give them a chance.“I would encourage all students to attend because everybody learns things differently, which is what makes these workshops so unique, as it caters to all types of learning styles,” she said.Fox said most times students are too shy or embarrassed to ask for help and guidance in their academics or to admit that they are struggling.“When a person asks for help, they do so out of strength rather than weakness,” she said. “To take the initiative and ask for help shows that you are dedicated to your success and dedicated to your own well-being.”Fox said she facilitates a study tables program that requires students to sign in and do homework or study in designated areas on campus for at least four hours per week between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.“A key part of this program is to allow for a space where students are able to come and assign a particular time of the day to do work,” Fox said. Fox said the comprehensive goal of these programs is not only to instill academic skills, but also life skills that can be carried with students throughout their lives and future careers. “It teaches you responsibility for yourself because we have to empower ourselves to learn to advocate for ourselves so that we can take care of ourselves,” Fox said. “The sooner we realize and achieve these goals, the happier we’re going to be, and the more successful we will be too.”Tags: Academic Skills and Strategies Workshop, office for student success, Study tables

“Look, everyone knows we have Sumler, Camarena and Casey; that’s not a secret,” Koffler said. “And we’ve got a competitive group around them that can do great things, but other teams are gunning for us because of those reasons. And if you don’t match that intensity, you’re going to be in trouble.” Last year, the Panthers relied mostly on Sumler to carry the offense. Koffler said fans can expect a more balanced offense this season. “We ran the ball all the time last year, and we were effective. But to take that next step, you have to be balanced, so we’ve improved our passing game,” Koffler said. “We won’t throw every down, but if we can complete eight or nine passes a game along with Sumler’s running, we can keep defenses off-balance. “We have some wrinkles on the offensive side that teams haven’t seen yet, and that’s exciting. We’ve got a bunch of skilled guys that we’re ready to utilize.” San Marino (0-0) at Gabrielino (0-0), 7 p.m. The Eagles make their home debut on their state-of-the-art synthetic surface at a newly constructed football stadium. The Eagles lost a number of offensive weapons, but they have a tough linebacking crew of Ricky Pokorny, Kevin Heinrich, Joel Steinkraus and Anthony McIntosh ready to pick up where the rest left off. The Titans are outsized, which was evident in last year’s 37-0 loss to the Eagles. Second-year Titans coach D.R. Moreland has a returning QB in Chris Yortsos, so protecting him is top priority. — Fred J.

They got to use their special teams. They were able to interchange personnel. Those are all things we haven’t done yet, and you never know what to fully expect until you get out there and do it.” The Gladiators will at least test the Panthers’ sizable defensive front. In last week’s win over Ganesha, Gladiators running back Philip Nemcek rushed for 172 yards and three touchdowns, and Willie Guzman turned in 101 yards and a TD. “They’re a very well coached team,” Koffler said of Gladstone. “I see an offense with two good runners in the backfield, an athletic offensive line, quarterback, and a team that plays solid defense. They just do everything right, so we’re going to have to work awfully hard to get this done.” The Panthers took care of the Gladiators last season, winning, 31-13. So, despite Koffler’s concerns, he knows on paper his team has the edge. Expectations are fine, but then comes living up to them. That’s what concerns Rosemead High School coach Matt Koffler heading into tonight’s season opener against Gladstone at Duarte High School beginning at 7. The defending Montview League champion Gladiators, ranked No. 5 in Division X, already have a game under their belt, having easily disposed of Ganesha, 50-7, last week. The Panthers, meanwhile, are ranked No. 7 in Division VII, and return one of the area’s most explosive two-way players in RB/DB Deon Sumler, along with quarterback Jose Camarena and OL/DL Josh Casey. The Panthers, 8-3 last season, looked impressive last week in a scrimmage against Pasadena, but as far as Koffler is concerned, the edge goes to Gladstone.
