Happy midterm season, Tigers! We’re cheering for you as you study for exams, write essays and tackle projects.  

If you feel like you’re struggling in some of your classes, know that you’re not alone! Needing academic support is a natural part of college that virtually every student goes through at some point. 

With the semester halfway through, now is the time to ask for help—and there is a ton of help available to you at Pacific. Our university offers robust academic support programs, including advising, tutoring and special accommodations for students with disabilities.  

You can reach out to your academic adviser for personalized mentoring to help navigate your degree requirements or coaching in areas like time management. If you need extra academic support, your adviser can also connect you to other campus resources.
