This workshop is designed to provide you with the key strategies for coping with possible challenges in your first-year study. The workshop will be in form of small group sharing, and each group will have a particular topic, for example:

  • How to use Moodle/Degree Audit/ What If
  • How to study Common Core courses
  • How to find materials for your assignments
  • How to handle reading and writing
  • How to communicate with Professors

Each group will be led by a few senior students and they will share with you their first-hand experience on the topic. Participants will swap groups every 15 minutes so that you can have a comprehensive grasp of different topics, as well as a chance to make many new friends.
