Time Management
Time management is the foundation to one's success in graduate
school. Juggling classes, schoolwork, work, and life's demands is
difficult and can lead to undue stress that affects your performance
and productivity. Attend our workshop to learn about planning and
study apps, prioritized to-do list-making, strategic studying, and multitasking to help you stay on top of your work, hopefully with time to
spare. It's sure to be a good use of your time!
