The Brief: Spring into Action at Chambers College

the brief

MARCH 4, 2021


Spring is right around the corner - and so are midterms! 
Don't let the beautiful weather distract you from excelling in your courses. Before we know it, the days will become longer and Morgantown will begin to warm up once again. 

With the second half of the semester ahead of us, plan out how you will be successful and stick to it! Take advantage of the opportunities around you to help you stay engaged through the end of the semester.

Want to get involved in activities outside of class? Our Chambers College calendar is packed with virtual events, academic support, student organization meetings, and more. See if anything piques your interest, and spring into action.
