Are You Stuck in Summer Mode?

Here are some tips to help you organize and get prepared for back to school.

  • Get motivated and evaluate your goals.
    • Go back to last semester and reflect on what you did well and what you need to improve on. 
    • Set new standards but keep good habits.
    • Set goals that are realistic but push you to achieve your absolute best.
    • Utilize study habits that work best for you.
      • Try Spark Charts, premade flashcards that can be easily put in your backpack to grab for a quick review.
  • Plan ahead
    • Utilize your school planner.
      • Write out when each assignment is due so you manage your time wisely. 
    • Find a study buddy. Studying for a test is much easier when you have someone to help you and motivate you.
    • Get a tutor. Meeting with someone who already succeeded in a class will help you get on track and show you new study strategies.
    • Use sticky notes. Have trouble remembering the little things? Write it down and stick it somewhere you regularly look, i.e. a mirror.
  • Utilize your professors
    • Ask questions.
    • Go to office hours.
    • Ask for help!
      • Your professors are here to help you. Don’t be intimidated to ask them to explain something you do not understand.
  • Find your happy place
    • Find a place that is comfortable but optimum for studying.
      • Make sure the area is well lit and the least distracting.
    • Find a place where you can distress and unwind after a long week
      • Go to the gym, make your dorm room your sanctuary or find a niche in the library.
