Time Management and Study Skills:  Or, Preparing for Finals NOW

You might ask yourself who in their right mind would start preparing for finals so early in the semester?  YOU!  Learn some easy steps in how to best learn material using your time management system as your guide.  Your new motto:  “Cram no more!”


We’ll be discussing strategies for success when it comes to college reading loads, touching on time management, *why* it’s important to read for class, how to skim and read analytically/asking questions while you read.”

Presented in conjunction with Mara Vahratian, Academic Advisor, Center for First Year Students


Don’t Panic!  Test Anxiety/Stress Management

Stress and anxiety are often synonymous with taking exams.  Some anxiety can aid performance, but too much can interfere.  Learn tools you can utilize to help you; we will review related study skills strategies and direct calming techniques which can be applied while taking tests.  It’s never too early, or too late, to practice these tried and true methods for stress management—be ready for whatever comes your way this semester!  Presented by SASC, Counseling and Psychological Services.

Tips of the Trade’: The Best Practices of Writing Explained

Punctuation to Sentences to Paragraphs to Ideas: The Writing Process in Reverse

The web has created a whole brave new world of opinions–everybody has one, and everybody seems to want it published!  When the question turns to how to write well, it’s impossible not to stumble on lists with titles such as “The 10 Keys to Writing Powerful Sentences” or “5 Things You Must Do When You Write a Term Paper” or “The 7 Deadly Sins of Writing Paragraphs.”  This workshop will be a kind of brainstorming about these lists.  Our method: after we take a look at a few, we will generate our own list.  After our hour, you should have a solid formulation about not only what works but why.

Presented by Dr. Peter Kratzke, Writing and Rhetoric
