Research / Study Skills

The first week of October is Get Organized Week (Oct. 1-7, 2023). This looks very appropriate especially since Midterm Week will be the following week (Oct. 9-13, 2023).

This side focuses on organizing during your time here at Alabama State University. How does one complete those papers, group projects, midterms, study sessions, and finals while also juggling work, family, fraternity/sorority, campus organization, and other commitments? In addition, what about those activities that allow you to enjoy the college environment (sports events, club activities) and local area (road trips, restaurants off campus)?
