The Mindful Student: Discovering Your Strengths and Re-Imagining “Success”
Monday, September 11
1028 Lincoln Hall
This workshop provides opportunities to explore how mindfulness can help you in your life as a student. Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present; it allows you to observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them good or bad, an approach that can be particularly helpful when dealing with setbacks or making difficult decisions. The emphasis in this workshop will be on how attitudes of mindfulness can help you slow down, take stock, and learn to define your own success.

How to study for a multiple-choice exam in Psychology
Tuesday, February 23rd
4:00 – 5:15 p.m.
27 Psychology Building
Do you hate multiple-choice exams? Do you think the questions are tricky, or based on content you thought was trivial? Do you find that your scores on multiple-choice questions are consistently lower than your scores on written answer questions? If so, this 1.5- hour workshop may be for you. For better or worse, multiple-choice questions are a staple of psychology courses, and they are here to stay. The good news is that there are ways to study effectively for multiple-choice tests. This workshop will focus on dispelling some common misconceptions about studying for multiple-choice tests. We will discuss how to know what you need to know, how to know when you know it, how to use the resources you have, including your time, effectively.
This event is part of the LAS Success Workshops series.
