Resources for First Year Students

Below are a number of resources that our team of peer mentors have found useful:

Purdue OWL: Unsure of how to cite a source? Purdue OWL has a number of examples and guides for citations in APA, MLA, Chicago style, and other formats.

APA Style Blog: This website is great for citing more unusual sources (like YouTube videos and interviews) in APA style. 

Focus Booster: Time management app that tracks your time on different tasks; this is a great way to implement the Pomodoro method (study distraction-free in 25-minute blocks of time, followed by 5-minute breaks).
