5 Tips On How To ACE Your Midterms or Other Exams!

Keep your head up!

Keep your head up!

It’s the 8th week of school so that means midterms! Here are some personal studying tips!

  1. Choose a Productive Study Area - Leave your room! Go somewhere that you can get your mind off distractions and solely concentrate on what you are studying. I usually go to the library or the McNutt Campus Center!
  2. Take Breaks - Breaks are healthy for you and give you an incentive to study because you have something to look forward to. Taking breaks gives you a chance to relax and re-energize.
  3. Study Groups - If the test or project you have is very big and you need to break it down, form a study group. You can all split up the work and teach it to each other. This is one of my favorite ways to study.
  4. Use Note Cards - Writing things down and reading them off in short bursts is a great technique to absorb information. Note cards are easily accessible and you can even make you own out of random scraps of paper!
  5. Eat Well - You mustn’t forget to snack and drink water! Staying hydrated and eating stimulates your brain cells. Eating fruit and nuts helps me the most. They give me more energy than chocolate or coffee!

Hopefully these tips will help you achieve ALL A's!

5 Things I Love about William Woods!

Choosing your college is important and you have to find the best fit for you as a person. Here are some things I love about William Woods:

1.Small Campus

Being on a small campus can be really irritating because you think everybody knows your business. But it really isn’t! The woods is small enough that you can walk past pretty much anybody and say hi. What more do you want walking to an 8 am class and someone walking by saying hi to help make your day.

2. Short Walks

We are lucky that our campus is basically in one big circle, the longest walk to class is no longer than 5 minutes (depending on how fast you walk).

3. Friendly Faculty and Professors

This was a big fear of mine being an international student. I was anxious to see what my professors would be like. From my freshman year to now my final senior semester, all professors and faculty have been extremely kind and helpful. My first encounter entering William Woods being scared and afraid was with Dr. Venita Mitchell. She helped me overcome me being homesick and adjusting to life here and I will forever be grateful.

4. Dulany Library

The library’s basement is the best place to lock yourself away from civilization and just concentrate on reading a book or doing your homework. It is like a little maze, you could get lose but it is the most peaceful place.

5. Junior Lake

The Lake is a perfect getaway to relax either sunbathing in the hot weather or kayaking with friends. You can relax at the dock, play sand volleyball or just chill and watch.

Let me know if you want to know all the other things I love about WWU!

Have a great rest of your week!
