A Welcome and an Open Letter to Team Members and Prospects

January 15, 2010 Leave a comment

As you can see, the SHOC@CMC Blog has been upgraded to its current form.

So welcome, once again, to the new and improved SHOC@CMC Website!

This site will serve as a repository of information which outlines our team’s goals (namely, getting better grades and spending less time studying), what actions we are taking to achieve those goals, and the progress we are making towards more efficient and effective learning.

The Study Hacks team will consist of a maximum of 20 people (10 guys and 10 girls) who will meet every other week to discuss new strategies and methods for maximizing learning while minimizing the time studying. The initial group of invitations to join the team was sent out earlier this week to 21 students whom I had discussed the program with and/or been in class with during the fall semester. To my absolute surprise, 17 of those 20 students agreed to join the team within 48 hours (via Facebook, of course). The overwhelmingly positive response shouldn’t surprise me, as this program is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to completely reshape how we operate as students to produce more performance with less grueling work.

As of the time of writing, the team consists of the following members: Sanskriti Ayyar, Ellie Beckett, Kelsey Brown, Ryan Boone, Jennifer Good, Skyler Grossman, Alex Johnson, Kate Johnson, Abie Katz, Elle Petit, Jeff Pollock, Mackenzie Scanlan, Daniyal Shahid, Daniel Shane, India Wade, Andie Wheatley, Tristan Williams, and myself.
