You’ve probably noticed that college classes move at a fast pace. Midterms are a few weeks away so let’s get ready!


Preparing for Midterms:

  • Check your course syllabi for midterm dates. The syllabi may also include information on the content of the midterm.
  • Check your class notes and/or midterm study guides (sometimes provided by professors) Do you understand all of the content? Is anything missing? If anything is unclear, talk to your professor during class or office hours. They are here to help.
  • Give yourself ample time to study.
  • Want to study on campus or between classes? Find a spot on campus here.


You are responsible for your education, but you don’t have to do it alone. Be proactive and use the resources available to you.

  • Writing and Communication Center – The WaCC offers appointments in person, over the phone and online to suit the schedules of all students. They can help you become a stronger, more confident writer and communicator.
  • Quantitative Skills Center – The QSC can assist you with anything number related. Check out their schedule to find a tutor who specializes in your subject.
  • Student Success Services – Feeling overwhelmed or need tips for ways to study that work for you? Make an appointment with the Student Success to develop a plan catered directly to your specific needs.


Try not to cram the night before. Study a little bit every day and midterms will be a breeze!
