Undergraduates: What To Do The First Week

Sunday, Sep 13, 2015



A lot happens during the first week—and every week--at Princeton, so you’ll want to get organized from the start. Devote some time to learning about resources, planning and scheduling, and building your time management skills in customized workshops or a one-to-one session with a learning consultant. It’s easier to keep up than to catch up. Here’s what to do the first week:


·      Attend the Academic Expo in Frick and get information about the McGraw Center and other campus resources on Monday, the 14th 10am-2pm.

·      Come to McGraw’s Orientation Event “Making the Most of the First Week of Classes: A Student Panel” (Scroll to the bottom of the Orientation Calendar and go to pg. 5 for more information.) on Tuesday, the 15th held at 9:00am and again at 10:00am in 330 Frist.

·      Ask any and all of your questions of McGraw Learning Consultants at our workshop, “Making The Academic Transition To Princeton” on Friday, the 18th at 2:00pm in 330 Frist.

·      Use this “What To Do The First Week (And Beyond) guide to start your semester strong.

·      Sign up for a McGraw Learning Consultation to plan out your schedule for the coming week—or even the whole semester.

·      RSVP for a McGraw time management workshop to help you Organize Your Semester (For Balance and Success).

o   Wednesday, September 23, 9:00-10:00pm in 330 Frist

     o   Friday, September 25, 2:00-3:00pm in 330 Frist
