Student Success Month is here to help start the year off right

October 2, 2020 — 

October is upon us and Fall Term is well underway. As a student in this new remote learning environment, 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 and dealing with life in the new Covid-19 world.

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.  

That’s why October is Student Success Month. Both new and returning students can take advantage of UM’s services and opportunities to help you get through the term with ease. The month features a broad range of topics that direct you to the many resources available to support your success. 

The primary goal of Student Success Month is to remind students that your success is dependent on academic, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

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

Workshops and events will take place online and many are faculty specific.
