Your study skills and strategies will evolve during your studies. The natural curiosity that comes with being a student, your desire for academic success, and the occasional stumbling block or challenge will motivate and empower you to grow as a learner. Learning about oneself can be an exciting journey and well worth the investment!
Smart Start Academic Orientation - September 22nd - 26th
Smart Start offers workshops in a variety of academic topics and is being held the third week of September. You will have attended two and a half weeks of classes, be aware of what is expected of you in your classes and be somewhat familiar with the culture at the U of S. Visit the SMART START Website to register for workshops in study skills, writing, tech help, library skills and grad help. All workshops are open to all students at the U of S, and are free.
Happy start of the term!!
