Welcome to Spring Semester!

Welcome back to campus! As spring semester begins take some time to think about the tools and skills you will need to make this semester your best yet. EffectiveU can help you plan a new time management strategy or boost your study habits. Make an appointment with your academic advisor to make sure you are staying on track for graduation. Now is also a good time to meet with a career counselor and research potential internships and careers (before you get too busy with classes).
