Last month, the Loudoun Campus hosted NOVA Cram Week. The purpose of Cram Week was to connect students with resources such as tutors and professors. Over 37 tutors and 60 students assisted during the four days of the program.

“We knew that Cram Week would help improve student outcomes,” said Achieving the Dream Co-Chair Laura Jacyna. “That’s why we offered to support the effort and provide food during the Cram Week sessions.”

The event was spearheaded by the Phi Theta Kappa Club and supported by all the other clubs on campus. This type of partnership brought the Campus together with the shared vision of student success.

Assistant Dean of World Languages and Phi Theta Kappa advisor Christopher Blake promoted the event heavily. He also tutored students Monday and Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

“I actively support efforts to encourage students,” Blake said. “That’s why I made myself available during Cram Week.”

According to Loudoun Student Ambassador Joshua Anton, “NOVA Cram Week was designed to support the two most important pillars of student success—academics and student life. Only because of student life were we able to have such a successful program.”

The Loudoun Campus is committed to promoting student success and this type of program did exactly that.
