Make the Most of Winter Break

With midterms coming up, it’s important to be prioritizing both you coursework and your wellness. Carleton has many resources to help you get stay on track, ensure you’re taking care of your own well-being and finding time to have fun as well.


Now is a good time to incorporate study resources available to you such as PASS sessions, CSAS workshops or other academic workshops which can be key tools to help with your midterm studying. The MacOdrum Library will be open 24 hours most weekdays, and Winter Break provides some time for students to catch up or get ahead on their work for the rest of the semester.


As a student you have access to a variety of wellness resources available to you on campus. Make sure you’re taking care of your body – eating healthy, taking the time to exercise and drinking enough water. Go to a public swim at Athletics, skate the Canal or spend some time with one of Carleton’s therapy dogs to release some stress. The Mental Health and Well-Being website Resources page can assist you in matching with the appropriate level of support based on your specific needs.

Campus Life

Just because there’s studying to do doesn’t mean there’s no time for fun! Grab some friends and get out of the house for a study break: check out a Ravens game at Athletics, go to an event hosted by the SEO or take a night and explore Ottawa. Winterlude is on right now and with activities all over the city, it’s the perfect mix of study break and adventure.

Thinking Ahead

With midterms signalling the middle of the semester, you may want to start thinking ahead to the future. The break is a good time to start considering housing arrangements for next year, securing summer employment and planning for any courses you may want to take over the summer.

The summer term is a good opportunity to catch up or get ahead of your studies, and with the schedule online now you can now begin to plan their schedule.
