Friday, week 3 (Sept. 11)


Congratulations on keeping campus safe, open, and Covid-19-free! No-one isolated and no-one quarantined at the moment. Way to go, Mules! For the students on campus: I know this is not the on-campus experience you signed up for. For students off campus: I know you wish you could be on campus with your buddies and all your extra curricular activites. Know that your professors all wish we could be safely in a room teaching and learning in person without freaking out. We have a fighting chance of doing that in the Spring semester. Wear your mask, wash your paws (you're Mules, right?) and keep your 6ft distance (about a large mule, or half a regular hippo).

Additional Information

Writing Center

The Writing Center is a fantastic resource to help you with any aspect of your writing.

  • Don't know where to start with a writing assignment?
  • Have an idea but can't put it into words?
  • Feel you can't face one more round of revisions?
  • Just want to have another pair of eyes look over your work before submitting?

The Writing Center can help you with all aspects of your writing. You're already getting in the habit of sharing your writing (on your blog), but you can get a trained writing tutor looking through it to help you improve your writing.

Academic Resource Center

The ACR has a series of seminars to help you unlock academic success. I wish I had these resources when I was a student. Nobody ever told me much about note taking or time management! Check out the full list in this google doc

You can also apply for a tutor if a subject is getting out of hand (Econ, Math, Bio and Chem spring to mind), and if College feels like a bit much, this is the place to talk with somebody to help you identify what you can do to turn things around.
