Course Description

This FREE Student Success Guide is your step-by-step program to boost your academic performance. The program is divided into 3 sections that I, Professor Maja, will walk you through each step. I will show you how to set boundaries, stop being a people pleaser, recognize that failure is just information and befriend a professor. I'll also give you strategies to deal with that shitty committee in your mind (you know the one that's always replaying your mistakes!). I'll show you why perfectionism hurts us and how multitasking is useless. You'll also learn how common the imposter syndrome is (hint, we all have self-doubt), and how to take good lecture notes. I'll explain why you have to stop doing all the readings and never, ever pull all-nighters. Whew! That's a lot. But in the end, you'll learn how to handle school so life doesn't feel so overwhelming at times. Check out the curriculum below and let's start this journey together!
