Stories From The Arch:
Chronicles of a Mac Student
It’s been a hectic month so far. Do you ever just experience one minor inconvenience and then feel like everything is falling apart? Earlier this month, I lost my card holder with my student card and bus pass on my way home from my night class. I didn’t want to wait for the bus, so I decided to walk even though it was really windy. But, when I got home and checked my pocket, where I thought I had my student card and bus pass, I realized I had lost it.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend the McMaster Global Engagement Town Hall, which provided an update to staff, Faculty, and students about the university’s global engagement strategy.
I apologize for the hiatus. I’ve been swamped with finishing assignments and studying for midterms all week that I really should have done over Reading Week. My expectations going into Reading Week were pretty simple: catch up on all the work I was behind on, do some research on what to do after graduation, and relax.
Time is really flying by! Tomorrow is the first official day of Fall and I can't believe that it's almost the end of the September. By now the excitement of Welcome Week has died down and with coursework piling on, the reality of the school year has set in. And on top of all of this, Reading Week is only two weeks away, which means that midterm season is right around the corner and it's time to start preparing yourself for those long nights of studying and/or writing essays.
Last week was the SSC’s first week of the #GetWithTheFlow digital series, and the focus was on getting with the flow of academics in university. So, I thought it would be useful to reflect on some of the ways my study habits have changed from first year, as well as the tools and resources I used to improve them.
