The Most Important Workshops of Your Life


From the Peer Advisors:

The SARN Peer Advisors are holding some pretty darn awesome study skills workshops this weekend, and we want to formally invite all you first-year students to come attend! We will be addressing the following topics: exam preparation, exam taking, public speaking, note-taking, time management, and reading retention.

These workshops go beyond your usual “you should take notes in class” lecture; we’ve put a lot of research and time into these workshops and we have edited them heavily to ensure that everything we tell you is relevant to a Wesleyan student’s academic experience. Think of it as an “insider look” at how to get the most out of your classes at Wesleyan. To find out where and when these workshops are going down, check out the Peer Advisor Blog.

  • Date: September 18 – September 20
  • Time: 2:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Place: Varies; see the blog.
  • Cost: Free
