Everyone has a midterm ritual he or she follows *. Mike personally studies for a few hours with snack breaks and possibly even moving camp. I, however, hunker down in one spot, plug in my headphones to Fratmusic.com and eat as many pretzel m&m’s as possible. During the Spring semester, it always seems harder to focus on exams when you have the prospect of spring break looming in the distance. Before you can get to that light at the end of the tunnel, exams have to be finished and (hopefully!) aced.
There are things that you need to consider when you’re trying to study during this hectic time
- Try not to come to the ERC to get a tutor the day before your exam- you’re going to be disappointed when you hear about the 7 business day waiting period and it breaks my heart to have to tell you, no, we can’t get you a tutor for this very second.
- Be careful of the 3rd floor of Mugar. The PAL section seems to extend during mid-terms and finals and Mugar transforms into the legendary “Club Mugar” for late night study parties. I’d head to a different section if you’re looking for a pin-drop quiet place to study.
- Study hard, muscle through it and get rewarded with a great GPA and spring break. #winning
Good luck everyone!
Kaitlin and Mike
