May Workshops

Summers can get pretty quiet around VIU, but new students, do not despair! There still are plenty of things going on, from Healthcare Week, to  the Career Center’s Ice Cream Social and Orientation, the campus is still alive and kicking! The WRMC even has a few activities, too, to help prepare you for your time at VIU.

Every other week, the WRMC will host workshops on different topics that will help you become a stronger writer and standout in your classes. We will be holding APA workshops in May, so new students can avoid plagiarism and learn how to respectfully use some one else’s work. These workshops are free and you do not need to RSVP.   Below are the workshop times and dates for May, and we will have more to come.We hope to see you there!
