General Roadmap

New Year, New Activity!

A new year means a new semester and an opportunity for a fresh start. So, how are you going to make the most of it? The majority of student groups accept new members at the beginning of the spring semester. New intramural teams start at the beginning of each semester as well. Maybe it is time for you to try something new!

If you are already involved in a student group or two, you might be looking for other ways to explore new interests and gain experience. Try taking a fun elective class on a topic you have always wanted to learn more about or get involved in a research project. Studying abroad is another great way to gain experience and explore the world.

What Are You Applying For?

January is a great time to start organizing your applications, whether you are looking for applying for your intended major, a job, an internship, or a campus leadership opportunity.

Write the Right Way

Writing may not be a strength for everyone, and that is why Student Writing Support is here to help you! The Student Writing Support does not just help with academic assignments. As a matter of fact, the majority of their work is helping students with writing outside of school. You can make an appointment for an online meeting for a Zoom face-to-face appointment.
