      What’s in my backpack? Thursday, September 21, 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
      Do you ever wonder what things set you up for a successful term? Or what to do when you don’t like your classes, or when you can’t seem to get organized? In this session, we’ll sort out how to move through those ‘start of term’ challenges.

      What did I just read? Thursday, October 5, 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
      Have you ever spent a couple hours reading a text but then not remembered any of it?  Frustrating. In this session, we’ll talk about some effective ways to stay focused, to improve your comprehension, and to get your memory working!

      I don’t know what to write. Thursday, October 19, 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
      We all get writer’s block... and even writer’s blaaah. Do you find yourself deleting your work over and over and over... and over again? In this session, we’ll talk about some strategies that might help you get your thoughts on paper, organize them, and make them into a mighty fine piece of writing.

      I can’t get my stuff done! Thursday, November 2, 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
      Have you been doing everything BUT your schoolwork?  Has procrastination set in? In this session, we’ll talk about how to keep motivated, and what might help when you start to get overwhelmed by your workload and your life.

      Yikes, the end of term! Thursday, November 16, 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
      Here come the exams, the oral presentations, and the stress!
