Get your mind in shape with Academic Boot Camp

Before you ditch the text books and opt for a week of munchies, TV and endless tweeting, think about your brain. Why not begin the break with a mental workout at the Student Success Centre’s Fall Boot Camp.

The Boot Camp will take place on Thursday, Oct. 31. Yes that’s Halloween! It’s an opportunity to feed your mind before you raid your sister or brother’s Halloween stash.

In addition to helping you improve your study skills, you will learn how to balance your academic and co-curricular commitments.

Academic skills you can learn about include:

  • Time management and avoiding procrastination
  • Effective and efficient reading strategies
  • How to study for exams
  • How to write university-level essays

Leadership skills you can develop include:

  • Project planning and management
  • Facilitating group meetings
  • Marketing and promoting events and services
  • Transitioning responsibility to others

Whether you want to improve your midterm marks or get more involved in group work or with clubs, the Fall Boot Camp will provide you with skills and habits you need to be successful!

The boot camp is free, but registrants must submit $20 for a participation bond at the time of registration. This amount will be refunded after the boot camp to all participants who attend. So what are you waiting for? Register on OSCARplus  under the Fairs and Special events tab.
