Do you feel like you are wandering aimlessly
through a forest of homework, papers, and exams every semester?
You may need help setting clear goals for yourself. Creating
short-term goals can help you make the most of your time
and keep you on track to reach your long-term goals - graduating
and getting a job you love! If you could use some guidance
creating short- and long-term academic or personal goals,
this is the workshop for you.
Adjusting to college life can wreak havoc
on your sleep schedule. You might have morning classes Monday
and Wednesday, night classes Tuesday and Thursday, and a
work schedule that changes every week. How do you keep up
with classes, homework, a social life, and still have time
to sleep? Come to the CSA's workshop "Is Your Sleep in Jeopardy?"
to find out.
We here at the CSA know that not all
students learn the same way. Some are visual learners, some
are verbal learners, and some might learn best while running,
listening to music, or eating. Do you know what style of
learning best suits your needs? If you don't, you could
be making your life more difficult than it needs to be.
Come to this workshop to find out how to study smarter,
Have you ever walked out of a lecture
and immediately forgot what it was even about? How often
have you read a chapter from a textbook and thought "what
did I just read?" Listening and Reading are not as easy
as you think! If you would like tips on how to get the most
out of your lectures and reading assignments, this is the
workshop for you. Just remember, more you learn the first
time around, the less you will have to re-teach yourself
for the exam!
Ever wonder why you can remember all
the lyrics to that ridiculous pop song, but can't seem to
remember any of the vocabulary terms for your next exam?
Come to the CSA's workshop on Memory and Retention to learn
how to make your brain work for you instead of against you.
Do you get hand cramps in class from
trying to write down every word the professor says? Give
your pencil a break! There is a better way for you to take
notes in class and from your textbooks, and still get all
of the information you need. If you are never sure what
to write down or how to write it, this is the workshop for
Finals week - the five days all college students
dread. With a little work and a lot of planning, you too can
survive finals week. Come to the CSA's "Prep for Finals" workshop
to learn how to study for your finals so that you can keep that
great GPA and your sanity.
Do you study for hours and hours and still
can't get that A? Studying doesn't have to consume your life,
and it doesn't have to be hard. We here the CSA view studying
as an art that must be learned and practiced. If you want to
learn how to study smarter, not harder, this is the workshop
When you hear the word "exam," do you immediately
panic? Exams don't have to be scary. Come to the CSA's workshop
on test taking to learn some tips and tricks that will help
you perform your very best on class exams, and even standardized
exams like the GRE's, LSATS, or PRAXIS.
Are you always turning in assignments late?
Do you pull all-nighters to write a paper or study for an exam?
You need a time management intervention! Come to the CSA's workshop
on Time Management to learn how to budget your time so that
you have time to do what you WANT to do and still get done all
the things you HAVE to do. (Yes, it is possible!)
In college, your class syllabus is your lifeline
- even more than your phone (yes, I said your phone). A syllabus
might look confusing at first, but it is the road map that will
guide you through your college courses. If you need help reading
your class syllabus or just can't figure out how your syllabus
could possibly be more important than your phone (yes, I'm sure),
then this is the workshop for you.
