This workshop is designed as a MIDSEMESTER CHECK for the Fall semester to self-evaluate how you are doing and give you tips on how to improve. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you having trouble getting started this semester?
  • Are you new to NIU this semester and trying to find services or places to get your questions answered?
  • Do you have test anxiety?
  • Are you struggling in your courses?
  • Are you having trouble studying?
  • Do you feel like you are drowning in debt and don't know what to do?
  • Do you feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done?

This workshop series is offered to help students on those topics and many more! The workshop will be help on TWO NIGHTS to give those students who cannot attend the first night the opportunity to participate in the same workshop the second night.
