The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

by Justin Digue

The air is colder and the leaves have almost fallen off of the trees. That means it is getting close to the greatest time of the year….EXAMS!!! I bet you thought I was going to say Christmas of Hanukkah or another holiday, sorry. Exams are what are on my mind right now. I’m here to give you a few tips about how to avoid an aneurysm when cramming for all of your classes.

  1. Start reviewing all of your information as early as possible.
    1. As college students, we are all fairly aware of the concept of procrastination. in fact, most of us probably practice this tradition on a daily basis. I mean, why do work now when you can wait until the last possible minute? Well when it comes to exams, this is not the case. There is so much information that one has remembered that it is highly advised that you begin studying as early as possible in order to avoid an overload of information and an overall bad time.
  2. Professors are there to help you.
    1. Contrary to popular belief, your professors are there to help you succeed in any way they can. Professors have office hours that are extremely helpful for some one-on-one time in order to ask questions and ask for any additional help. This strategy, along with emailing your professor, are ways to ensure that you are successful.
  3. Take breaks and try to relax.
    1. Though studying is important, it is vital that you take time from studying to kick back and relax in order to reduce your stress level. There are many different ways that are effective in stress relief and relaxation.

Use these tips to keep you out of the psych ward this exam season.
