Academic Workshops

Mindset for Success

Students respond to challenges, setbacks, or constructive feedback in different ways and this is primarily because of their mindset on their growth. This workshop will have students look at their goals and role models to understand and plan for how much work and effort it takes to succeed, and how academic ability is not static, but rather a product of their time, effort, and interest in the goals they set for themselves.

Preparing for Exams

Students will build a practical study plan for their final exams by exploring personal study strategies and practicing how to break exam materials down into smaller study units.

What's "App-ening"

This workshop presents beneficial academic and financial-based mobile applications for students to use in their everyday lives. The apps focus on studying effectively, managing time, staying on task, as well as maintaining a budget or savings plan, learning about credit, minimizing frivolous spending, and investing.
