Start the year off right with Student Success Month

October 1, 2019 — 

October is upon us and Fall Term is well underway. As a student on campus, you may be starting to feel the pressure of mounting responsibilities – from academic work such as assignments, upcoming midterms, lab reports and research, to personal commitments such as family, friends, volunteering and a part or full-time job.

This is a critical time to ensure you have all the information and tools you need to tackle this year, no matter what comes up.  

For both new and returning students, learning about the U of M’s services and opportunities is an ongoing process. With the wealth of resources available, figuring out where to start can be a challenge. 

The University of Manitoba is proud to launch its inaugural Student Success Month for October 2019. This month highlights a broad range of topics that direct students to the many resources available to support your success on and off campus. 

The primary goal of Student Success Month is to raise awareness that student success is dependant on academic, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.

Many topics will be of interest to first-year and upper-year students, as well as graduate students, residents and those in professional programs. 

Some of the event topics include:  

  • Writing and study strategies
  • Research skills and services
  • Career preparation
  • Coping with stress
  • Emotional awareness and mindfulness
  • Cultural identity and transitions

Events will take place at both the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses.
