Mid-Terms. The exams that we dread almost as much as Finals. When it comes to study, there are a few things that could be done in order to boost your concentration and your retention of he content that you are trying to memorize.

Tips:

  1. If you absolutely need background noise of some kind, try either instrumental music or try ambient noise (if your surroundings don’t currently have this: i.e. birds chirping, rain & thunder storms, etc.). Reason being that when you are listening to either instrumental music or ambient noise, you are more inclined to not become distracted. If your music has lyrics: you will more often than not sing along. Or at the very least hum the tune.
  2. If you need absolute silence: This maybe the most obvious, but go to a location that doesn’t have a lot of people making an abundance of noise.  I.e. Libraries, Griffin’s Nest (provided that there is no event/meeting going on up there)
  3. Finally, go outside: Enjoy the weather & soak up the sun. If there are no events going on, the Golden Meadow is a great place to be!

Until next time guys, stay classy!

Hey Y’all!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Do you like music? I do. I listen to it for fun, I listen to it to help me study, and I listen to it to daydream about my stories. “Why should I care?” you ask? Well, you probably shouldn’t. I just wanted to share some music with you.

Today, I’ll just share my “Study” playlist. It mostly consists of instrumentals from the Celtic, Fantasy, Asian, and Spooky genres. All of them have helped me focus on my schoolwork and put me in a relaxed, blissful state.

Here’s the list; I have them arranged by genre, and they all range from an hour to three hours long:
Fantasy/Celtic –





Spooky –


Asian –


 

Here’s a bonus! A Valentine bonus. What? Did ya really think I was just going to leave y’all with just study music on the day of love?! Here are my personal favorites:








I hope you cherish one another today. Bye bye!

Hey!

I had a blast this weekend, traveling to the city in celebration of my girlfriends 21st birthday! There was a lot going on over the weekend, on and off campus.. STL housed a weekend called STL Uncorked, a fun and exciting concert full of entertainment, drinks, food, and the surrounding community!

Personally, I have officially decided to pursue my dream of becoming a Chiropractor.. I’ve given in a ton of thought over the last 4 years but I feel like it has been a dream of mine for a reason! I enjoy helping people, understanding them, making them better physically and psychologically, as well as letting them know that I am always around to help their family and friends. I hope to graduate in the Fall of 2018 with a bright future ahead of me and clear idea of exactly where I want to go with my practice to be as successful as possible. I first had the idea of becoming a Chiropractor in the 8th grade when I broke my tailbone. Long story short, I didn’t heal correctly and chiropractics worked wonders on getting me back to equilibrium!

The awesome thing about college is the amount of free time you have compared to what you had in high school! However, that can be a bad thing as well. With all this new found free time, it seems harder to get assignments done and study ahead for tests. In order for me to get everything done, I have to study someplace other than my dorm room. I feel that when I’m in my room, I get distracted more easily. So throughout my year and a half here at Fontbonne, I have found some great study spots that help me focus. Maybe they can help you as well!

One of my favorite spots to study is on the 2nd floor of the library in the little study rooms. I think they are perfect to hang out in for a couple hours because you can easily get your work done there. The study rooms have big tables that I use to spread out all my books and papers on. The study rooms are probably my favorite place on campus to study!

Another study spot of mine is the first floor of Medaille in the AMC. I like studying at the tall tables between the row of computers. While it is not as secluded as the study rooms in the library, I still find myself getting a decent amount of work done there. At least a lot more work than what I would get done in my room!

I hope that you check some of these study spots out on campus because I think you’ll find yourself getting a lot of homework done like I find myself!

Study Hard and Keep Your Cool!

This will be my third semester here at Fontbonne, but it seems like it was just yesterday I was brand new. My first impression of Fontbonne was how easy the transfer process was.  I continue to love the small, accessible size of the campus, and the staff and advisers that are always extremely helpful and […]

Addiction: Spotify

by Alumni Posts February 5, 2014

Spotify is for sure my new addiction in life. Thanks to my best friend Erica. I use to be a loyal Pandora user, but I found my love elsewhere. Spotify is just perfect; it fits everyone’s music needs. I have multiple playlists. Anything from Frank Sinatra to System of a Down. Some of my playlists […]

Is this London life real?

by Alumni Posts June 10, 2013

It’s still hitting me that this is my life right now. A few days ago I arrived in London to study abroad this summer. It’s hard to believe that this dream is now a reality. I have already seen and done so many amazing things, and this is only the beginning! My class starts tomorrow, […]

Studying Schmudying

by Alumni Posts October 11, 2012

“How do you study?” I’ve been asked this question a few times over the course of my higher learning journey. The answer is always, “It depends.” On what? you might ask. Well, for me, the way I study depends on the class, my mood and surroundings. The one thing that is constant, however, is my […]

Library Story

by Alumni Posts October 21, 2011

My first year at college, I attended a massive state university (I’ll bet you can guess the one). In the first semester, I had to learn a valuable lesson in focusing on studying that involves the library. Seeing as how I’m taking an online course right now about information systems at Fontbonne, I started thinking […]
