This week’s questions:

What do I need to keep in mind now that midterms are over?

  • Deadlines for final exams and projects are right around the corner! Make sure you take a look at your syllabus to find out what’s due when. You may even want to make a time line to visualize the work you need to get done.
  • Find a study group or partner – it’s not too late to begin studying with classmates. Working together can be more efficient and it’s a great way to build strong connections!
  • Don’t forget about the resources on campus! Be sure to check out the Writing and Communication Center and the Quantitative Skills Center.

What can I do to help myself finish strong?

  • Take some time to reflect. If you made a study schedule, are you sticking to it? What have you accomplished this quarter that makes you feel proud? Are there any habits you want to adjust during your last few weeks?
  • Set aside some time to take care of yourself. You’ve been working hard, and you deserve some time dedicated only to yourself. You may want to set aside time to read, watch a movie, or just relax in your room with music. Whatever helps you relax, be sure to make some time for it.
  • Sleep! Most people need at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night in order to feel their best, and pulling all-nighters can hurt more than help. Try to maintain a consistent sleep schedule to keep rested and ready to go.
