 Spring 2018 Veterans Transition Seminar

The Veterans Transition Seminar (UCOLL 304 section 5) is designed to assist you as you transition from the Military to a major research university. Navigating a large university can seem overwhelming at first, but UCOLL 304 exists to help you settle into your new role as a student. For example, in the seminar you will learn how to navigate the university’s complex library system; tips on effective note taking strategies, effective reading and study tips, how to organize and budget your time efficiently to not only devote to your education, but how to fit in personal pursuits as well. Last but not least, we will also help in identifying your new career objectives and/or goals, and how to select a major that would be fitting to those goals.

 

We appreciate your service to our country-

The Veteran's Transition Seminar's goal is to serve you!
