Spring Semester 2018


Time Management

Increase your productivity, reduce our stress, and take control of your life!

Efficient time management is the key to getting the most out of your day and minimizing the pressure your responsibilities might carry.  From keeping up with your homework to successfully completing your assignments and exams, our two-part Time Management Workshop will help you reach your goals.  First we’ll talk to you about how you can plan and prioritize your time wisely.  Then we’ll discuss your own time management efforts and how you’ve dealt with setbacks, unexpected events, and other “bumps in the road”

Sign up today for one of our two February-March workshops:

Workshop A, Part 1:          Tuesday, February 27, 3:00-4:00 p.m.
