Back-to-School Tips

Posted by Jade

Where has the summer gone? It seems like just yesterday we began our much awaited break. Fast forward a couple of months and it’s time to begin another school year! So here are some helpful tips in order for you to have a successful year!

 

  1. Don’t just start with a positive attitude, keep that attitude throughout the year; it’s helpful to your friends and teachers. You’ll be more efficient and the year will seem to fly by. Positivity will also help with getting all your work done.
  2. Stay organized. School can be frustrating when you’re getting a lot of work, so it’s best to keep everything organized. For example, having a separate binder for each class will make life a lot easier.
  3. Join a club or after school activity! This is a time in your life to figure out what kinds of things interest you…so get involved and see what sparks, or ignites a passion in you!
  4. Come up with a plan/schedule to help you manage your time after school. Prioritize academics, athletics, family time, social time, etc., and devote a specific amount of time to any of these things that are important to you.

 

Last tip: Work hard, play hard! HAVE FUN!

Graduation

Posted by Xiomara

This is probably the most heartfelt ceremony for you, your friends and your family because it means “goodbye high school, hello college.” You know what school you are going to attend, but thats pretty much all you know; you have no idea what to do, where to start or what to ask. But don’t worry, you are definitely not alone. High school is a different experience for everyone, but it is a vital part of everyone’s life because it is the phase that influences what life will have in store for you. Graduation is a very important day because it represents your struggle for the past 4 years and it is also initiates the adult life you are about to pursue. I suggest planning for graduation on the first day of school. Complete those 4 years strong knowing that you gave it your best. Do well so that when you receive your diploma, you know you are being rewarded for your hard work. Graduation is an indication that you are ready to move on to bigger and better things so cry, but cry of happiness. It is a very special day so make it worth it. After that, only great things are ahead of you.

Find Your Optimal Study Environment

Posted by Shannon Steichen

Everyone likes to study in slightly different ways. Some like to have complete silence, others prefer to be surrounded by people doing their own things, while others have a specific music playlist that is essential to their focus. For me, the best place to study is outside in a park or in my own room.

I first tried the quiet area of the library, but couldn’t focus with complete silence. Then I tried the talking area of the library, but decided that the conversations going on around me were much more interesting than my chemistry homework. When I moved to the open lawn at campus, I had enough noise to keep my brain occupied, but not so much that I could not focus on the task at hand. I also discovered that these same conditions could be achieved in my own room.

Finding out what study environment works best for you is a process that may take some time, but it will most certainly be worth the effort once you find the place that allows you to study at the optimal level.
