Published on March 29, 2013 by arothstein

(Meridian) Do you ever feel like your brain is playing a game of Twister and all you can do is sit back and watch it? Well, you don’t have to feel brain frazzled anymore. Students at Broadview University are in for some mental muscle building. The Boise campus is offering short, survival tips courses designed to help students succeed. Called BVU Boot Camp, the 45-minute courses will be offered one day a week—all quarter long.

Broadview University

Broadview University-Boise campus is offering mini courses to help students untwist their minds and learn some things not typically taught in the classroom.

The courses cover a variety of topics that newer students often struggle with: Learning how to learn, how to study and make it through a test without freaking out, how to best manage your money, and how to keep your career in mind while working through a survival job.

“These courses are designed with newer students in mind, but they can be attended by anyone,” Tiffany Coleman, the campus’s community manager, said. “Our campus recognized that students often need a little bit of extra help, and sometimes the things they could benefit from learning aren’t necessarily taught during their coursework. These mini courses are designed to help complement their learning.”

The following courses will be held every Wednesday in Room 210, with the exception of midterm week, from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. and again from 5 to 5:45 p.m.
