Get exam ready with "Keep Calm and Study On!"

Feeling the pressure in the final weeks of the term? Keep Calm and Study On!

Running from April 5 to April 14, we've put together some great workshops, destressing fun and downloadable resources to help you succeed in studying for finals and focusing on your own personal wellness. The goal of Keep Calm and Study On is to remind you to start studying early, be intentional about planning breaks and to take care of your wellbeing during the exam period.
