9 Ways To Prepare For The End Of The Semester

After two months of nonstop stress, spring break is much needed for all college students. Whether you are relaxing at home or making some money at school or going on the trip of a lifetime - you probably won't be thinking about your coursework that much. But - if you want to be prepared to finish the rest of the semester strong for when you come back, you probably should make a plan of action.

1. E-mail all of your professors and get an estimation of your current grade.

2. Look at all of the remaining large assignments for the semester, and make a calendar for deadlines and checkpoints.

3. Find all of the work you have due after break and do it asap so you don't have to cram it in the Sunday night you return.

4. Calculate what grades you need to get on assignments for you to reach your goal GPA.

5. Think about what your schedule is going to look like next semester and pick out some classes.

6. Review a little bit so you get an extra head start on your midterms, or even finals. If you start now (and don't forget over break) you'll probably get at least a 5-10% boost on your exams.

7. Find out what stressed you out the most this semester and make a plan to eliminate some of that stress.

8. Figure out how many swipes and Flex you have left, and calculate how much you can spend a week so you don't run out before the end of the semester!

9. After you complete all of this work, relax and enjoy your break to the fullest that you can!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
