Winter quarter is here! Hopefully after that beautiful, month-long break you all are ready to gear up for another ten weeks.
Perhaps last quarter was your first quarter, and it was a little rough; or maybe it wasn’t your first quarter, but things still didn't go like you wanted them to. Don’t come into this new quarter discouraged, feeling like a failure or hung up on mistakes and missteps of the past. Hopefully there are some things that you can learn from those mistakes and take with you into this new quarter to help you better succeed. Be inspired by the quote of the month,
“One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.” --Henry Ford.
Here are some tools/resources to help you in the next quarter:
CLAS tutorial services- Free bi-weekly tutorial sessions to supplement the classes you are taking and offer extra help. To sign-up for available sessions, click here.
NSBE Study Room- Come enjoy this quiet place to study Monday-Thursday from 7-10pm in South Hall 1430. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays a math grad student is in the room from 7-8pm to assist anyone in all class levels. Take advantage of this great privilege!
NSBE Study Groups- E-mail Nicole as soon as possible so she can group you with other people taking your same classes. Study groups meet together weekly and go over material, homework, and can review for tests together. This is definitely one of the most effective ways to study.
Professor/T.A.’s office hours- I know it can be a little intimidating, but they really want to help you. Grab a buddy from your class and go check it out. It’s also a really great opportunity to get to know your professors which will come in handy later on for letters of rec ;)
Hopefully these suggestions have been somewhat helpful. If there’s anything else NSBE can do for you as an org please let us know. It’s an org for the members! If you have any questions or need advice, NSBE Exec is always here for you also. If you want to get in contact with any one of us, click here.
Best of wishes in your upcoming quarter!
NSBE Secretary and Historian
