Starting Over: How Not to Repeat Last Semester
Are you unsatisfied with how last semester turned out for you? Having two semesters gives you the chance to start over and improve upon your academic skills. However, knowing where to start can be a daunting experience. This workshop will help you to identify what areas in which to focus on for the upcoming semester. (Attend one of the many other workshops for more in-depth coverage on specific study areas)
Getting Organized for the Semester
Strategic planning for the semester can help you with time management, help you get things done, and even help you take some needed ‘reenergizing’ time! Bring all of your syllabi for all your classes. Avoid conflicting ‘mash-ups’, help yourself to effectively position yourself for better learning, better understanding, and better grades! The hour spent in this workshop will more than make up for itself throughout the semester!
Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance: Preparing College Textbooks:
Forget what anyone has told you: throw away the highlighter! Instead, pick up an “old school” fine-point pen, spend an extra small time with your textbooks, and never look back. That’s right: this presentation is essential to anyone who wants to ensure consistent, successful results in courses involving–and being tested on–textbook readings.
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!
