Navigating Northwestern Academics

An event series for undergrads

Navigating Northwestern Academics is a series of casual forums designed to help undergraduates find their best footing in negotiating the sometimes-rocky path toward their academic goals. These events may be especially useful for first-year students, but all Northwestern undergrads are welcome. 

Find Your Rhythm, Stay Motivated, and Finish Strong

Finding it hard to stay motivated with courses this quarter? You’re not alone!

Join us for a 45-minute structured discussion to explore what interferes with motivation, and how you can find a rhythm and structure that helps you feel more engaged as you finish out the quarter. RSVP at Eventbrite, and you will receive login information. Sponsored by Residential Services and Academic Support & Learning Advancement.
