Everything is getting pretty hectic before finals next week. Here are a few things to remember while studying and finishing up papers/projects.
- Prioritize! Make sure you know how long different things are going to take and make sure you give yourself enough time to finish everything
- Know what works best for you. At this point in the semester you should at least know what doesn’t work for you. Try some different study techniques and see what helps you most.
- Remember to take a break. The stress can pile up really high, really quickly. When you’re studying take a few 5 or so minute breaks. Also, take some time off from studying, go for a run, watch a movie, give your brain a break.
- Eat full meals and get enough sleep. This can’t be emphasized enough. This is one of the things that can make or break your end of semester. You NEED to eat and you NEED to get sleep.
Other than that, summer break is coming up fast. If you are taking summer courses, make sure they didn’t get cancelled due to low enrollment. If anyone is still looking for a summer job, keep an eye on the Husky Jobs link. That will sort through some local and on campus jobs. In addition to this, there is an opportunity with the Animal Care Facility. More info on that below.
“The Animal Care Facility at Michigan Tech is looking for several undergraduate students. Primary duties including cleaning, recordkeeping, and routine care of the animals. Approximately 10-15 hours/week are available for each student. The schedule is flexible and hours can be arranged around summer classes.
Please contact Courtney (email@example.com) for more information.”
Remember to study, but also to enjoy the last two weeks of the semester!
