It is finals review week and ED20i is now ending. We’d like to say that it was a great pleasure sharing this unexpected experience with each and every one of you. We understand that it is difficult to connect with your UCSB Gaucho community while in a space away from campus but we also hope you can begin to understand the demands of a university academic life. In person teaching is always our preferred way to connect with our incoming international students but as we all know this year was an extraordinary year and we still have more to come before we return to what we miss…a full functioning UCSB campus experience. We truly hope you keep doing your best to achieve your academic accomplishments and we encourage you to take serious consideration of the topics we presented in ED20i. These topics are critical to your academic success and though this online experience is not the preferred way of introducing such essential topics we hope that you are able to remember at least a portion of what was presented. Remember, though this course is coming to an end we are here to help you along the pathway to academic success. Please stay in touch.
