For those students who are having a hard time staying focused during the academic semester, instead of getting prescribed Adderall, CU is offering workshops on how to achieve academic success for the remainder of the year. I received an email from my advisor outlining these various workshops, and I think it would be useful to share it in my blog. However, these workshops are only being offered from February 13-28th so take advantage of the help if you feel like you are struggling!

Lily is a senior at the University of Colorado at Boulder and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies along with a certificate in Business. She is originally from Scarborough, Maine, but decided to venture to Colorado for it's beauty and to get back in touch with her birth place which is Boulder. She is a Film Studies major because she is very interested in the behind the scenes of what goes into making a film. Not only that, but her favourite hobby in the world is to watch movies. She recently went abroad to Sydney, Australia to get a taste of a different culture. While being there, she learned to not take life too seriously, and to slow things down. The Australian lifestyle can really teach a person how to be chill. You can find Lily at the movies, hanging on Pearl Street having a beer with friends, or at the breathtaking lookout of Flagstaff enjoying the view.
