Message to students: April 2021
You did it. It’s the last week of classes, which means that the Winter 2021 term is almost behind us. We hope you’re proud of all that you accomplished this year. (We sure are!)
From Gina Robinson, director of the Student Success Centre, “Congratulations to you during the last few weeks of the term. It’s been a challenging journey at times, so take pride in your hard work, perseverance and commitment in getting here. You did it.”
You’ve got this!
As you prepare for exams, try to focus on what you can do instead of what you can’t or don’t have time to do. Work on one task at a time, and reward yourself for completed tasks. Plus, check out our top exam tips, courtesy of the SSC academic skills experts, to take your exam prep to the next level.
A reminder from Gina: “Be kind to yourself during this stressful time, and make time for yourself to refresh and regroup! The Student Wellness Centre and McMaster Athletics and Recreation offer awesome activities to explore.”
