Need writing help or career advice? Not sure where to start your research for your term paper? It’s important to know which academic resources are available to you as a student. Whether you’re online or on campus, you don’t have to go far to get the educational support you need.

Here are five resources that can help you make the most of your college career:

Library

A research paper is only as strong as the references you cite, which is why the library is vital to your success as a student. Herzing’s digital school library database offers a vast archive of scholarly journals, magazines and newspapers, case studies, transcripts, videos and more. If you need help finding the most relevant article for your work, a team of trained librarians are available to assist you. They can also help you cite your sources in the format that your instructor requires.

Career Center

The new online Career Center is an immersive, all-encompassing career development service that can help you build your resume and cover letter, create a custom e-portfolio, sharpen your networking skills and strengthen your interview skills. Whether you’re just starting to look for internships, or you’re in the midst of your job search, this tool is essential for every phase of your career development.

Writing Center

Strong writing skills are central to your academic and career success, so make sure to take advantage of the Writing Center. Writing center coaches can work with you in one-on-one sessions to improve your writing skills, from APA formatting to grammar basics. You can also send in your papers for review and work closely with a writing coach to make any necessary revisions and adjustments.

It’s easy to schedule an appointment with the Tutoring Center online – just find a time that’s convenient for you. Many of Herzing University’s academic coaches have master’s degrees and industry experience in their field.
