All Mercer students are welcome to join us on the Macon campus in Ryals Hall, first floor, room 101.
Stress Management 101
Friday, January 19, 2024, 10:00-10:50 a.m.
Start off the semester with powerful stress management tools: we'll list our stressors, discuss ways to break our stress cycles, practice easy breathing techniques, use humor to relieve stress, and experience a guided meditation. This workshop will help you start off your semester with mindfulness and positivity!
Friday, February 2, 2024, 10:00-10:50 a.m.
Procrastination is a bad idea--literally! But if procrastinating makes us feel bad about ourselves, why do we keep doing it? We'll watch a video about the procrastination dilemma then review time-management solutions that include creating a master semester schedule, utilizing the urgency-importance matrix, and employing techniques to minimize internal and external distractions.
Choose Your Learning Style
Friday, March 22, 2024, 10:00-10:50 a.m.
Are you a visual learner, an aural learner, a kinesthetic learner, or a read/write learner? Could you actually be all of these, depending on the task you want to accomplish? The answer is YES! We'll watch a video that debunks the learning styles myth, and then we'll review several strategies for becoming a multimodal learner.
