Finishing Strong  
Beating the End of Semester Slump

It is that time of year again! We are fast approaching the end of the semester. Final papers, research essays, and end of semester tests will soon be due in the coming days and weeks.  

Even under regular conditions, navigating the end of semester slump can be stressful. It is even harder during a pandemic. Duke University has developed a Survival Guide to the End of the Semester. It includes tips and tricks to end the semester and the 2020-2021 school term successfully and stress-free.

Alumnus Spotlight: Anthony Navarrete

Anthony Navarrete is a 2016 graduate of the University of Denver Josef Korbel School of International Studies. Navarrete applied to Korbel while he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ethiopia and was looking for a place to continue his education and build his community. 

His time at Korbel helped prepare him for his current position as an International Trade Specialist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service.

“Korbel did an excellent job in preparing me for my post-graduate success,” he said. “Everyday I am putting to use the critical thinking, analysis and practical communication and writing skills I learned at Korbel. From my Coverdell Fellowship practicum with a local Denver NGO to a semester in Washington, D.C. working at an international development NGO, there were a number of unique opportunities that helped prepare me for where I am today.”
