Welcome to Study Hacks on Campus- University of Waterloo

Officially, Study Hacks on Campus is described as follows:
The Study Hacks on Campus Project is an offshoot of the Study Hacks student advice blog. The goal of the project is to help students take control of their lives. It asks them to form local groups and meet regularly to support each other in their attempts at self-improvement. Each group maintains a blog that describes the strategies they experimented with and their results. 
This is the campus project for the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, Canada. If you're a UWaterloo student, and would like to join, e-mail me (ayomide3 at gmail dot com) for the meeting times and dates.

Happy Learning!
