Tuesday, 2/14 | 1:30 - 3 pm | SSS Office (UU 256)

Study Skills Workshop: Learn to read good. Do you find yourself falling asleep while reading? Or worse, do you find your eyes drifting along pages of text without remembering what you just read? In this workshop you will learn the art and importance of paying attention while you read. You will discover how annotating not only saves you time, but makes you a more confident reader, and a more successful student.

Take a Rest
Monday, 2/27 | 7 to 8 pm | SSS Office (UU 256)

Sleep is one of the most important things in our lives, but one of the first things we sacrifice when we feel we get busy. Sleep regulates our emotions, our appetite, our memory, and many other things. Come learn the benefits and make a sleep plan to help you learn how to be both busy AND well-rested!

MotivationMotivation Workshop
Friday, 3/17 | 3:30 to 4:30 pm | Academic B 113

Steve has been giving his signature Motivation workshop for semester after semester, and it always leaves participants feeling refreshed and recharged, ready to take on the tough things in their lives. Remember: "Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." -Charles Swindoll


Poetry Shindig
Wednesday, 3/22 | 7 - 9 pm | Location TBD
SSS is holding its annual poetry workshop led by professor-poet Joe Weil. All poets, non-poets, minions, and marauders are welcome to attend. Bring something to write with and on, drawings to inspire, and/or an instrument to help you create. This will not be your typical poetry workshop. Open especially to those who dislike poetry. We like challenges!

game night
SSS Game Night
Tuesday, 3/28 | 5 to 10 pm | SSS Office (UU 256)

Given this semester's "This is Us" theme, we want to play games that make us all question who each other are. That means we'll be playing Social Deduction games, like Mafia/Werewolf, The Resistance, Two Rooms and a Boom, and probably others. These are EXCELLENT games for big groups, so bring a few friends with you.


MomentsMoments Matter
Thursday, 4/6 | 7:30 to 8:30 pm | UU 102

Often times we get caught up with the many big things life is throwing at us. This workshop is designed to make you stop to notice and appreciate the little moments that bring clarity and sanity to our lives
