Some advice for a Thursday before spring break: Attend your classes. Even if you think you can do well because you have the course textbooks, your prof posts lectures and other materials on Moodle, your friend gives you their notes etc., this is generally not a good strategy. Research has shown a connection between regular class attendance and good course grades.

How are you?  Have you asked a ULethbridge friend that question lately? It’s normal to start to feel a little overwhelmed at this time of year. Now that assignments, research demands, homework, and tests have started to pile up, I encourage you to reach out today to check in with a friend to see how they are doing. Meet for a walk or a tea, play a game of table tennis, work out together, or just sit and talk. Keep it simple. It’ll help you both.

Brrrr… The anticipated cold, wintery weather has finally arrived! Are you prepared? A colleague recently gave some students this advice: Dress like an onion — in layers!   That’s my advice to students new to this part of Canada this week. Dressing in three or four layers of clothing, including a good coat, gloves, hat and boots, is the antidote to the freezing temps!

Welcome! Are you rested up and ready to make the best of this term? I encourage you to start the term by recording a video or writing a letter to future you, committing to three goals you’ll accomplish this term. Make sure you include details – describe your goals vividly. Include the ways you’ll know you’ve achieved the goals (make them measurable).
