Spring 2019 REDtalks Schedule


Finding the Fun: Turn Your Interests and Hobbies into Academic Projects

One stubborn misconception about higher education is that research and scholarship need to be over something that is academic, serious, and often boring; however, successful scholars turn their interests and hobbies into short and long-term projects. This REDtalk will consider ways to discover and cultivate interests, conduct research, find mentors, and create engaging academic projects.

Presenter: Ms. Sarah Ridley, Tutoring Services Coordinator
When: Thursday, April 18, 4:00-4:45 pm
Where: Library, 6th floor


Coping with Anxiety

This REDtalk will provide coping strategies, digital tools, and relaxation techniques that can be used for both prevention (before you feel anxiety) and intervention (when you feel anxiety). Attendees will learn to distinguish between fear, worry, and anxiety.

Presenter: Ms. Pamela Comer, Director of McNair Scholars
When: Tuesday, April 30, 1:00-1:45 pm
Where: Library, 6th floor
