Workshop Descriptions

Tues August 11th

Personality Types, Career Exploration & Strategies for College Success: In this workshop you will learn how to use the EUREKA website to answer three questions:

We will discuss majors, research careers and find out how much salary you will need to make to support your lifestyle.

Writing as a Process: The least we can do to write better essays is to write them in more than one sitting, and not force ourselves to produce a final draft all at once. But there are some strategies to keep in mind during those sessions that can help the process even more. Join us for an informal, conversational introduction to some tips on how to make life less miserable while writing.

Student Success: Learn the keys to be a successful college student. Topics include: Student Success, Time and Self management, study skills and overcoming procrastination.
