Time to take stock!

How are you doing this semester?

Are things going as well as you had hoped and Could things be better?
If you are fairly new to the College of Science and not performing as well as you had intended this semester, please consider our U-TURN workshop program. 
This in-person series of weekly workshops is centered around academic strategies and support.

  • WHEN: each Wednesday from October 18th through November 15th from 12-1:30pm.
  • WHERE: location is TBD

The sessions are facilitated by Neal Patel: College of Science Peer Advisor majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology, and by Robin Rarick; Senior Director for Academic Advising.
The topics are different each week, but they build on each other, so it is necessary that you attend all sessions to get the full benefit.
U-TURN Topics - Strategies for Academic Success

  • Oct 18 – Assessing stress and self-care strategies for better learning
  • Oct 25 – Examining motivation, priorities, structuring time, and tackling procrastination
  • Nov 1 – Learning strategies and study skills based on neuroscience and cognitive psychology research
  • Nov 8 – Exploring test preparation and test taking strategies; addressing test anxiety
  • Nov 15 – engaging beyond the classroom for career exploration and preparation

Space is limited to 25 College of Science students.
Priority will be given to those who are not already in or have completed SCI 195a or another similar success course, and who are within their first few semesters at UA.
If you are interested in participating in this class, please submit the online application form by 10/11.

We'll email back with a location for the workshops.
