Succeeding @ University

Richard SpacekOnce you establish a solid foundation of basic university survival skills--how to write an essay, how to prepare for exams, and so on--where do you go from there? The answer is "as far as you wish." University, after all, is not just about survival; it is about successfully realizing your full potential. Here are some Quicknotes that will help you develop more advanced university skills. The Quicknotes on critical thinking and fallacies will give you the basis to make sure your arguments are effective, logical, and well-structured. Plagiarism is a hot topic in academic circles; be sure you understand how to avoid this trap. If you are not sure where you stand, try our "Common Study Challenges" questionnaire. We also offer some advice on reducing stress, but consult counselling services for serious, persistent anxiety. We offer workshops on most of these topics, and we cover all of them in UNIV 1001, our three-credit hour University Skills course.
