Transitioning: From Course Work to Quals
Tuesday January 29th • 1:00 – 2:30 pm • Burkle 24

Where do you go when coursework is over?

Coursework kept you in a regular schedule. Your routines and work processes were dictated by classes and end of semester deadlines. What happens when all that ends? This workshop offers strategies for effectively taking notes and keeping information organized, developing your own structures and routines, and tips on keeping yourself motivated and on track in preparing for your quals.
