SLICES is a collection of workshops and events that are open to all students to help you adjust to the US classroom and access the right campus resources. Our purpose is to help you be successful in this new academic setting with English as the medium of instruction. Are you having trouble communicating with your professor, understanding the required coursework, not making the grades you expected? We’re here for you. We work closely with OIED to support you.
