Winter break is right around the corner, but finals still stand in the way of students. Here are some final study tips for a stress-free end to a bustling fall semester.
STUDY WITH FRIENDS
It isn’t surprising that a flood of coffee-drinking college students will swarm into the library during finals season. To lessen the overwhelming feeling that this time of year may bring, forming a study group is an excellent way to add some social interaction to your study blues. According to Washington University in St. Louis, students absorb academic information better when in a collaborative environment, rather than studying alone. Luckily, the College has over 20 private study rooms in the library to take advantage of.
MAKE A GAME PLAN
Making a realistic game plan can alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling. Instead of opening up your planner and seeing a never-ending list of tasks to accomplish, start by making a simple to-do list in order of importance. Trying to balance your assignments based on the earliest turnaround date and the greatest amount of work is key to a successful finish to the fall.
