College Tips: Surviving Mid Terms

It's that time in the semester where the work load is piling up.  The exams, papers, and homework are all due this week and last.  So how do I get through these challenging weeks?
  • Begin studying and preparing a few weeks in advance.  
  • Create flash cards
  • Re write or re type notes from lecture that might not make sense
  • Get your rest. Sleep is important and if you deprive yourself of it you run the risk of getting sick easier or just wearing yourself out.
  • Exercise!  A quick workout can provide you with a clear mind and more energy to continue studying better.
  • Create To Do Lists.  I am a huge fan of to do lists.  They help keep me organized and I love the satisfaction of crossing things off of my list. 
  • Take a deep breath. When you are feeling overwhelmed take a step back and remind yourself why you are working so hard.
  • Study with classmates. Studying with other people helps you gage how much of the material you actually know.
  • If you are writing a paper, ask a friend to edit it for you. Chances are they will find an error that you didn't find.  
  • Remember to take time to do things that de-stress you!
Good Luck!
