Writing Workshop Series

ISSS is pleased to partner with the Writing Center on a series of writing workshops exclusive to international students!

Email Netiquette

Online via Zoom (Registration Required)
Thursday, September 9, 2021 | 2:30-3:30 PM (PT)

All emails are not created equal. An email to an employer or faculty member should be written in a different style and tone than one to a friend. You want to get it right the first time! This workshop will teach you all about professional and academic emails and appropriate "net etiquette."

PowerPoint Like a Pro!

Online via Zoom (Registration Required)
Thursday, October 7, 2021 | 2:30-3:30 PM (PT)

Slides and data visualizations can make or break your presentation. This workshop is meant to teach design principles and introduce online tools for non-designers. Before and after examples will be used to showcase how to use color schemes and white space, to contrast elements, and to communicate main ideas effectively. Students should bring their own laptops for the slide redesigning.
