Academic Boot Camp

The Student Success Centre will be holding their first Academic Boot Camp this Saturday, January 12! It’s a full-day boot camp running from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. and will be held in the Mills Library.

The boot camp helps students who may not have done as well as they’d thought in their first semester or who want to refresh their skills. The day focuses on:
– Time management and procrastination
– Effective and efficient reading skills
– Study strategies and exam-writing
– University-level writing
– One-on-one and small-group support from Academic Skills Assistants

As it’s the first time they’re offering this event, registration has been limited to 30 participants; as of yesterday afternoon the boot camp is completely FULL, despite not promoting it at all yet! This is a good sign that students are paying attention to what the Student Success Centre does and also need academic support. If you receive any questions about the boot camp or know of students who would like to take it, please let Jennifer Meister, Academic Skills Program Coordinator, know at extension 24450 as high demand might mean offering it again in February.
