Tips for Suceeding on Final Exams

Posted by Xiomara

The toughest part about ending your academic term is facing final examinations. These tests can either make you or break you so you know you have to work hard to do well. I think we are all aware that obtaining a college degree isn’t easy. Life keeps you busy and just when you think you have time for yourself, life throws you another responsibility. Making time to study is difficult and some of us wish we just had more time. Sadly, there are things we cannot control so accept the challenge and strategize your plan of attack to pass those finals. Planning, organization, and rest are your tools for success.

 

Plan out what your days will look like on multiple calendars like a personal planner, a calendar at home and your phone and color code your events to make it user friendly. Responsibilities become less stressful when you have a visual of how much time you have to study and complete your duties.

 

Planning is nothing without organization. Surround yourself with things that will let you focus and think clearer. For example, if you dislike your writing, type things out in a font you like. You should also keep your book bag and desk free of clutter so that things don’t get lost and you have control of your space. Keep what you need and discard what you don’t need (my tip: do not throw graded assignments away until the end of the term so you can refer back to them, if needed)

 

Last but not least, rest. Keep a day, if not, a few hours to yourself to relax and destress. Whether it is through guided imagery, yoga, going out with friends or sleeping, do what you want to do instead of cramming your brain with facts for hours and hours. It is nice to give yourself breaks to keep a healthy mind and positive thoughts.

 

Final examinations will be less stressful if you try to make this a part of your daily routine. The hardest part is maintaining this lifestyle, but push yourself and envision your future to remind yourself that you are almost done. Good luck!

Senior Year Opportunities: Dont Waste Your Time

Posted by Arzoo

Senior year can be one of the most stressful but memorable times of our lives. From applying to different colleges, maintaining high grades to senior events, it is one hectic year. Utilizing our time to organize and refresh ourselves can be achieved through breaks such as winter or spring breaks. This is a time where you can think about organizing your summer into a productive one. You can look for different volunteering opportunities around your community. Or use this time as an opportunity to look into the different clubs, organizations or sororities you plan on joining. Extra time like these breaks can help balance out the stress, so use your time wisely.

Productivity with Some Fun Along the Way

Posted by Kyle Barras

Your college years will by far be some of the most memorable years of your life. But how can you be expected to graduate in four years, while building a resume, interning, working, going to school and still having fun along the way? You must be creative with your time. Utilize every moment that you are doing something fun as a time to be productive. For example, you may hang out with your friends and study or review your lecture notes. When you have a group project in class, don’t just do the project; make meaningful connections with your peers as you do it. Get to know them, what their major is, what their aspirations are, and more. Networking doesn’t necessarily need to occur in a professional office setting.
