Semester Kick-Off: Planning for a Semester

It is the beginning of a new semester! When our semester starts off in a positive way, it builds our resilience and helps to minimize some of the stress.

Mid-terms is a busy time of the semester when multiple assignments and tests are due. Planning enough time to prepare for our tests is tough, and sometimes we are unsure of where to start.

Engaging with Our Learning

November 9th 2023 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m. (virtual)

In this workshop, we will explore strategies for retaining information, and becoming active learners with our studies.

Effective Study Strategies
