How to succeed in your 3-week courses

Attend Class!

Due to the intensive and integrative style of the 3-week courses, it is important to set the goal of attending every class. Missing one class is similar to missing a traditional week of school. Be prepared to engage deeply with your course topic!

Expect Homework

Be ready to hit the ground, running! You should expect to have readings, papers, or group work after each class. While you will have more time outside of the classroom, you should anticipate spending time completing classroom assignments throughout the 3-week block.
