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? Reserve a private study room in the library 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. This center also supports students at any stage of the reading, writing, or presentation process. You can always be better! The WaCC helps students become strong, confident writers and communicators. Located in UW2-124.
  • Quantitative Skills Center – Don’t let numbers or quantitative concepts be daunting! Visit the QSC for free tutoring in any course that uses numbers. The QSC can assist you with anything number related. Check out their schedule to find a tutor who specializes in your subject. Located in UW2-030.

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