Because life doesn’t have a GPS: U-Turn, March 7

The Spring semester U-Turn event will be held on Tuesday, March 7, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the LSC North Ballroom. All students are urged to take this opportunity to improve their academic performance, no matter their current status.

In addition to the full array of academic support resources that are always on hand, U-Turn is adding two new features this semester:

1. Students who’ve received U’s will be able to get into the Express Lane by scheduling a 30-minute appointment in advance to meet with a U-Turn Navigator — so no wait time the day of the event.

2. Academic Success Workshops will be offered throughout the day during U-Turn. The workshops, open to all students, will alternate between the following topics every 20 minutes in Room 386 (right across from the North Ballroom): Time Management, High-Impact Learning, and Motivation & Goal-Setting.

The interactive workshops are designed to engage students in their own success, with exercises and plenty of group discussion. No registration required.

Learning Programs, in the Institute for Teaching and Learning, coordinates U-Turn, which is a campus-wide collaboration of offices dedicated to student success.
