Are you finding it difficult to manage the reading load? Do you feel like other students are able to get more out of their reading for class than you are? Are you struggling to retain what you read?
If any of these questions resonate with you, please join us in the Colket Center for a discussion about reading. Together, we will explore some common reading challenges and develop practical strategies for addressing these challenges.
