(Resources) Academic Success Team Drop-ins

Are you feeling that there’s too much to study and too little time?

Are you concerned about upcoming evaluations?

Are you just feeling overwhelmed by your readings and learning remotely?

We feel you.

The Academic Success peers are online to talk and help you out. As of this reading week, the academic success team is piloting sessions throughout the term for you to drop by with your questions and concerns, no matter how small. We’ve been running academic mentor appointments for a while now, but these drop-ins offer fast, judgment-free support for whatever is on your mind.

If you haven’t checked them out yet, take a look at the peer workshops posted on CLNx: we have multiple options to help you with things like Taking Useful Notes from ClassesReading Effectively, and Planning your Projects.

And last but not least: the Study Hubs are running online at multiple times every day to help you complete readings, work on assignments and prepare for finals. Like the drop-ins and workshops, just sign up on the Academic Success Events & Workshops calendar on CLNx to join in.
