First-Year Science Accelerator

Kick-Start into Science: First-Year Science Accelerator

First-year university students can easily become overwhelmed by the “new” – new campus, new people, new approaches to teaching and learning, new hands-on experiences, and new opportunities. Join the First-Year Science Accelerator series and beat the information learning curve.

In these series, you will:

  • Meet future friends, study partners, mentors, and motivators
  • Learn about expectations of first-year professors in Science
  • Explore different study techniques for different subjects (biology, chemistry, math and physics)
  • Review the requirements for writing biology, chemistry and physics lab reports
  • Learn how to set goals that inspire you to act and achieve
  • Find out how to use a syllabus, manage your time, and create a schedule or calendar
  • Get involved on and off campus
  • Learn how to study, how to take notes, and how to memorize effectively
  • Learn approaches to study for Science midterms and exams

First-Year Science Accelerator will be led by SSSC mentors. These leaders have experienced a lot of what Carleton has to offer including research, volunteering, student organizations, and overcoming obstacles. They will share their knowledge and get you started on the right foot!
