studying

How do I prepare for it? Well, I’ll be honest, I am already overwhelmed with projects and it has been weighing on me like a ball and chain since Spring Break. In short, I’m so burnt out I don’t really care. However, that doesn’t mean I will forget about it.
To me, Finals are the same as regular tests and quizzes; they’re just bigger. So, start off by studying as if it’s just for a quiz. Don’t stress about it, because that will only cloud your mind and make you forget what you need.

Noise

It has been  pouring rain here in STL, so that means no exploring the city, but  just really focusing on work. When I am working on either blog related things, school, or personal I have to have music on in the background. I love listening to music either while I am writing emails, writing, or just chilling, music helps me to focus and concentrate. My playlists are made up of  a random mix of sappy love songs, depressing songs, feel good music, and just some of my old favorites. I’m not much of a music guru, or a vinyl record collector, I actually like to listen to the same songs over and over again when I’m working (weird) but here’s a mix of my favorites – a little Ellie Goulding, Broods, John Legend, Adele, and sorry but I love J. Biebs. I also love love some classic Dad Rock, ya know the oldies? Also Amy Winehouse can do absolutely no wrong in my book, and LaLa Land is currently a favorite album to listen to! Music is something that I use to help me either concentrate or de-stress.  We all have de-stressing “secret weapons” that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, music is one of my ways to de-stress. Whether it is having a great playlist to jam to in the car, dance to, or study to- music is much welcomed noise for me, some background hums is always enjoyed.

Helpful study tips

by Mary on March 6, 2017

in Academics

For me I have had different study habits each year that I have been a student in college because for me it is based on what classes I have at the time. I used very different study habits when I was in religion class freshman year as compared to sophomore year when I was in Chemistry class. It has also changed based on where I live. When I lived on campus in Medaille I studied mostly in my dorm room on the weekends when I had upcoming unit tests. I would also sometimes study up on the third floor of AB when I was preparing for a Chemistry test because I could bounce questions off of my classmates. So, if any science majors read this article I would suggest studying up on the third floor of AB with your fellow classmates. Sometimes last year in the evenings if I had a really big test coming up in one of my dietetics classes or chemistry, I would study at one of the big tables on the second floor of the library.  I also found this as a helpful space to study last semester for a few of my classes even as a commuter.

Another major tip that I was given my freshman year was, if you have a major test to study for you should turn off your phone while studying so that there are less distractions.  There were a few times last semester when I would work in the library and I found this very helpful as a way to be productive.  Some people are just so attached to their phones and it can be good to turn it off even if it is just for an hour, then you can turn it back on.  An additional helpful study tip that I can think of if you are studying for a large test is to take time to make study cards either online or in index cards right after you learn the vocabulary. This way you can start studying them right away and study a chunk of the cards at a time, so that you are not cramming at the last second.  I know I found this to be useful last semester when I was in biology because it is a course with a lot of vocabulary terms.

I hope everyone does well on their midterm exams or final exams if you have an eight week class that is ending and I hope these tips are helpful.

study tips for midterms

by Claire on March 6, 2017

in Academics

Midterms. Halfway done with Spring ’17. With spring break just around the corner, midterms are in full-swing on campus. Some of my favorite study tips include:

  1. Make time to go outside and enjoy nature when it is nice out.
  2. Do your homework as early as possible and start studying a little bit each day for tests, so when it comes time for the night before a test, you aren’t cramming everything into one night.
  3. Stick to some vitamin C for your energy, not sugar drinks and coffee.
  4. But do take the time to relax and have some fun.
  5. Start on projects and papers early because everyone knows how there is that one day that every assignment seems to be due on.

Just take it day by day and soon enough midterms will be over and spring break will be here!! We are almost there Griffins, hold on tight!

xoxo.

Beefy

by Jacey January 30, 2017

“When I was in high school, they used the word ‘beefy’ to describe someone who was muscular or really built. I’ve never heard it used in the way you’re using it,” my dad told me as I ranted about my classes for the spring semester. ‘Beefy’ is how my Language Disorders teacher portrays our text book. […]
