Making Sense and Making the Most of DegreeMap with Catherine Chandler

Foggy Bottom: Thursday 1/24/13 at 3pm | Mt. Vernon: Wednesday, 1/30/13 at 3:30pm

Does DegreeMap seem like just a big pile of jargon, taunting you with limited information and a status bar that believes you’re 50% finished at GW? Do you yearn for snazzier tools to make four year planning (even more) fun? Are you not even sure what DegreeMap is??? This workshop will equip you to use DegreeMap to your best advantage, explaining what it does, what it doesn’t do, and how it can be your best friend on Banweb.

Undergraduate Research sounds great and you think you want to do it! But what are we talking about, really? Why do research – don’t I already do that in my classes? When should I do research, am I ready now? How do I get involved? And how do I talk to faculty about it? This workshop will explore the wonderful world of undergraduate research and give you the understanding and confidence to take the plunge and make some knowledge!
