You’ll have to pardon the slow week over in the student blogs.
It’s finals week.
That means lots of studying, staying up late and probably a good amount of coffee. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for students, but it’s ok. They have a month of Christmas break to recoup!
As a college student, I always thought the week before finals was as difficult, if not more so, than the actual week of finals. That’s when all the big projects are due on top of all the studying you have to do for finals. It’s a crazy time for everyone.
Good thing our students have the help of Student Academic Support Services! Also known as SASS, this office is largely known as the tutoring center. But, I think it’s great because they can take it a little further than just explaining facts or paper-proofing. They have professional advisers who can help you learn how to study. They can teach you study skills (Are you a visual learner? Maybe flashcards aren’t the best way for you to study.) and how to manage your time.
Of course, none of our students waited to the last minute to use these services. Right, guys?
