To reach this event virtually use this link:

Though he is the most-brilliant supervillain the world has known, Megamind (Will Ferrell) is the least-successful. Thwarted time and again by heroic Metro Man (Brad Pitt), Megamind is more surprised than anyone when he actually manages to defeat his longtime enemy. But without Metro Man, Megamind has no purpose in life, so he creates a new opponent, who quickly decides that it's more fun to be a bad guy than a hero.

We hope your first week of classes has begun with a successful start! 

Below are 6 tips that will help you stay organized for a successful Fall 2020 semester: 

  1. Plan your semester in writing: Get that pencil and paper out and what you have to do and when. Physically writing things down helps your brain to remember to do something in a whole different way than just thinking about it.  

  1. Refer to your syllabus to plan out your semester: When are big projects, exams, or regular assignment due? Get an overview of what your semester will look like now, by using info from your syllabus.  

  1. Highlight things in color: Use a different colored pen or highlighter to make big due dates stick out in your planner. Those dates will catch your eye easier. 

  1. Break due dates into smaller lists: If you have an assignment due in two weeks, what do you need to do in the next two days, five days, or week? Identifying smaller steps will make the assignment more manageable prior to the due date. 

  1. Schedule study times now: Weave specific study breaks in your day or week so you have allotted study or work times already identified in the beginning of the semester. This will help so you don’t have to find the time during the busy semester, it will already be in your planner. 

  1. Ask questions: If you have questions now, you’ll probably have them in a month too. So ask professors, classmates, or friends to clarify something right away. Other people probably have the same questions as you have!
