Returning to Academic WritingTues, March 26, 5:30-7:30pm, room 3317

This workshop is aimed at people who need a bit of a jump start to their academic writing—maybe you’ve been out of school for a while, are new to graduate studies, have taken some time off, or just feel a bit shaky on some basics. We’ll do a crash course on writing tips and set you up for paper writing success.

ReverseOutlining WorkshopTues, April 16, 3:00-4:00pm, room 7209
