Warm Up for Your Winter Term

December 17, 2020

During the week of January 4th, students are invited to Warm Up for the winter semester by completing the daily seminars, workshops, and activities at Winter Warm Up Week.

RRC’s Library & Academic Success Centre have partnered with student services across the college to build this schedule of events to help students prepare for a successful Winter Term. Warm Up includes presentations, videos, resources, help desks, and supports you can access online. It’s the perfect opportunity to focus on skills that will maximize your success in your studies, including time management, study skills, getting the most out of your textbooks, managing testing anxiety, putting your strengths to work in your future career, and practicing mindfulness.

Tutoring and advisor support are also available by appointment.

Warm Up Week Schedule

Winter Warm Up offers a broad range of upbeat and informative sessions intended to build you up at the start of the new term. Feel free to attend everything on the list, or pick and choose what is suitable for you. Some sessions require registration, so please visit the Winter Warm Up website for the full details and to register for each session you plan to attend. We look forward to warming up to a new term with you!
