Academic Strategy Peer Tutors (ASPTs) work one-on-one with students throughout the semester to guide them through the transition from high school to college. ASPTs, who serve as academic mentors and role models, work with students to help tem develop strategies for time management and test taking as well as study skills and note-taking skills. If you would like to meet with an ASPT, contact Ally Chisholm, Academic Success Coordinator (, 508-215-5830).
