Bulldog Boost - Fall 2017

Nov 5, 2017

Accelerate to the end of the semester

Stressed about classes and papers? Money? Anxious about that big research project you need to finish? Feel like you need a boost! With partners from across campus, the Kathryn A. Martin Library invites you to Bulldog Boost, a three-day event designed to give you the support you need to tackle the end of the semester with confidence.

The event offers additional research support, wellness activities, fun prizes, and workshops on timely topics such as citing sources, handling your money, and reducing your stress.

Staff members from the Kathryn A. Martin Library, Academic Writing & Learning Center (AWLC), Tutoring Center, and Writers' Workshop will be available to support your triumphant run to the end of the semester. We are actively seeking out students and helping them to sign up or drop-in for a quick session on research, writing, or to find a time that a tutor is available. Candy & experts will be readily available! Expect to see us in Kirby Plaza and outside of the library!

What else are we doing to help you crush Fall 2017?  Plenty!

PAWS (Pet Away Worry & Stress) will be in the Library on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Get some quality time with a kitty or dog. We rate the experience a 13/10! It's a proven method for reducing stress and anxiety.
