Quote of the Week:   Sent to us from SPU student, Elizabeth Dolhanyk: "I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage, with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post which any human power can give." - Thomas Jefferson (in a letter he wrote to a friend when he was the American Ambassador in Paris in 1788)

ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

How Can I Make the Most of My Time?
It seems that there is never enough time in the day for a college student, but you can learn to make the most of the time you have by developing good habits of time and task management. The Center For Learning is sponsoring several workshops to help you manage the time that you have. During these workshops, you will learn how to evaluate your use of time, maximize your efficiency when studying, and make time for those things that are most important to you. Attend one of two workshops, on Thursday, October 12, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. OR from 8:00-9:00 p.m. in the Center for Learning, Lower Moyer Hall. Questions? Contact the CFL Front Desk at centerforlearning3@spu.edu or call (206) 281-2475.


How Can I Read Faster and Learn More?
Is your reading load a bit heavy this quarter? Come to the Center for Learning to attend workshops to learn practical strategies that will improve your reading rate as well as your comprehension and memory of what you have read. Gain hands-on experience in previewing, note-taking, and concept mapping--as well as a few tips on what to do when you are pressed for time. Attend one of two workshops on Tuesday, October 17 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. OR from 8:00-9:00 p.m. in the Center for Learning, Lower Moyer Hall. Questions? Contact the CFL Front Desk at centerforlearning3@spu.edu or call (206)281-2475.


What Do I Study and When Do I Start?
The best athletes, musicians, and students know that it takes time to prepare for an event or performance. They also know that the more they practice, the more talented they will become. In Center for Learning workshops we will explore what current research suggests about the most effective ways to study and train your mind. You will learn how to develop active strategies for reviewing, build skills in test-taking, and reduce your level of test anxiety. Attend one of two workshops on Thursday, October 19 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. OR from 8:00-9:00 p.m. in the Center for Learning, Lower Moyer Hall. Questions?
