Director’s Message (All Students)

It’s that time of the year again — the stress point! You are all almost there, just a few more weeks, and a few more papers. It may all seem too much today, but in a few weeks you’ll be running free!

So, for now, take a deep breath, and then prioritize your work. Which paper does need to get done first? Order them with deadlines so you are not facing all of them at the same time. Can you finish something before the deadline so you can clear off space for another one? Can you move that non-school commitment for now or share it with someone else?

And, if you are feeling in trouble or that schedule seems impossible, talk with the faculty or instructors now about managing the last part of the term. We all want you to succeed, so let us help you get there.

All the best now for the last push through. You will get there.
