GOOD LUCK ON MIDTERMS!

Rise and Shine CSUN Journalism!
The smell of midterms is in the air, so I hope everyone’s prepared. Take advantage of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) located on the third floor of the East Wing of the Oviatt Library. The LRC is a place for students to get help with homework, essays, and other school related work in all subjects, especially writing! http://www.csun.edu/undergraduate-studies/learning-resource-center

Keep in mind, advisement is two weeks away so please take a look at the faculty office hours and adjust your school/work schedule to make sure you are able to meet with an adviser. Students will not be able to register for Fall 2015 classes if advisement is not completed. 

Advisement will be held from March 16 – April 24, 2015. Stop by the journalism office for any questions or concerns.
