Exam Jam brings workshops, tutoring, puppies and more to Douglas College

Exams can be stressful. But with preparation, coping skills and a little fun, they don’t have to be. From Dec. 4 to Dec. 10, Douglas College’s Learning Centre is hosting Exam Jam.

With events and workshops at both the New Westminster and Coquitlam campuses, Exam Jam will get you through exams and give you skills you can use for semesters to come.

Here’s what’s happening:

TUTORING The New Westminster Learning Centre will be open for business during regular hours on Dec. 4-7, 9 and 10, and Coquitlam will be open on Dec. 4, 5 and 10. We encourage students to book 25-minute tutoring appointments during this time. Students can reserve a spot by booking online.

STUDY GROUPS Often, two heads are better than one. And multiple brains are even better. The Learning Centre is holding study groups at both campuses for Psych 2300, Acct 1110, CSIS 1175, Econ 1250, Econ 1150, Finc 1231 and Biol 1103. Study groups will be led by our experienced peer tutors, and students can book a spot online.

WORKSHOPS Students looking for coping skills are invited to attend free workshops facilitated by a Douglas College counsellor. Topics range from managing test anxiety to beating procrastination. To sign up, please stop by the Learning Centre or send an email.

PUPPIES That’s right–puppies! The Douglas College Student Union is hosting a puppy room at their New Westminster office. These little darlings are on loan from the nice folks at the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society. If you’re feeling stressed, take a well-deserved break and pet a pooch. The puppy room is open on Dec. 5 from 11am-1pm (other dates to be determined).
