tips

As I have probably mentioned before, I majored in fashion merchandising at Fontbonne for my undergraduate degree. I still keep in contact with all of the wonderful professors in the department, and always let them know if they need anything. A few weeks ago, the director of the program, Dr. Liljequist, told me she had some ideas on how we can collaborate. She asked if I would be interested in updating some of the bulletin boards in the business department hallways. I love any sort of crafty project, so of course I said yes! This will be a task that I complete throughout the end of the semester and into the early parts of summer. That way, when students come back for the fall semester, the walls will look fresh and updated. While I am doing this, I’ll also help clean up our resources room in fashion merchandising so things are easy to find for the next group of students that will be using the space for various projects.

I don’t have any pictures to post yet, as I am still in the beginning stages of this project. But I will say that I have a lot of ideas up my sleeve that are very different from what’s currently there! I hope the students that end up walking the halls of AB (Anheuser-Busch building) will enjoy the new look of the department. If you continue to keep in touch with teachers, advisors, coworkers, etc., you never know what opportunities may come out of the connections. Whether it’s a small task or a potential job, it’s important to nurture the relationships and connections you make in life. Because I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the fashion merchandising department, I will always have an interest in helping them out. I just can’t stay away. 🙂

The smell of freshly cut grass and the sight of newly bloomed tulips is not the only thing people are ready for in spring.  But also spring cleaning!  College students can take advantage of spring cleaning by just doing these 3 tips and will make the last part of the semester easier!

  1. Rearrange your dorm room, bedroom, or apartment! Getting rid of unnecessary clutter and just changing a couple pieces of furniture around can really change the atmosphere and make the room look cleaner.
  2. Look through old notes/papers.  It is always a good idea to keep notes and assignments from past classes.  However, they can become a big, messy pile in the bottom of your closet.  Instead, organize or get rid of the papers you don’t need then, store the rest in a file cabinet or plastic bin.
  3. Go through your clothes.  It is time to bring out the summer clothes and start putting away the heavy coats.  With that being said, this is a great time to look through your clothes and get rid of items you do not wear anymore and donate them!

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.

My Study Tips

by Jessica March 1, 2017

My best piece of advice is to listen to instrumental music (like what I posted on Valentine’s Day).  It will keep you focused and relaxed. Without lyrics, there is nothing to distract you from your work. For those who have trouble sitting in one place, like moi, use the Pomodoro Technique.  This technique is simple and […]
