How To Prep For Finals

Final projects and papers will be due soon. Still have questions about those assignments? Contact your professors during office hours or ask after class. Need some help? That’s what the Writing and Communication Center, Quantitative Skills Center and Student Success Services are here for.

If you’ve developed a regular study schedule over the quarter, great! Keep at it and consider adding some extra time during the week before finals. If not, these time management strategies, presented by Student Success Services, can help you get back on track. They also host a link to tips for creating a schedule.

Team up with your classmates for study sessions. You can learn from each other and you will probably meet some great people.

Keep an eye out for Cram Sessions hosted by ASUWB in the library.

Finally, take care of yourself.

Get enough sleep and don’t pull all-nighters. Take a break when you need to. Go work out in the fitness center, gather some friends and enjoy the new sports field, and make time for relaxing. Resting your mind is important too!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the CUSP office and one of our Student Assistants would be more than glad to help you out. Our phone number is 425-352-3427. We are located in UW1-173 (It is not a room, but an open space).
