  • Staying on top of term work
  • Balancing studies and personal time
  • Doing Library research
  • Tackling essays, reports, and other university assignments
  • Preparing for tests and exams
  • And more…

Jump Start is free, but spaces are limited, so we ask that you register online.  Lunch is included.  Sign up for one of the three sessions:
