Two things that don't happen by accident... Beaver dams, and academic success. With Spring Term classes starting tomorrow, a little bit of planning and calendaring will help you keep on track in the coming weeks...

5 You're two thirds of the way through the academic year, so you should have a good feel for where you've had some difficulties, as well as opportunities to take your academic performance to the next level. In either case - or both - consider working with an academic coach. Scheduling a coaching appointment is easy.
