Three weeks into the September term…

Three weeks into the September term and you probably feel both the rush and excitement of starting a new term and getting settled into your studies.  It can be a positive and stressful experience.  Whether this is your first term with us or your last before you graduate, there are always adjustments to be made and things you can do to make this term the most effective and successful ever.

What do you do to get yourself ready for a term?  Do you have tips and strategies that you want to share with other students? If you do, feel free to leave a comment below.

If you would like some tips and strategies for enhancing your academic success, why don’t you attend a workshop or set up an appointment with a learning coach or peer coach? You can also review some of the online resources we have available on the MyESC Learning Support tab or on the NEC Office of Academic Support website.
