As we approach finals, Student Disability Services would like to wish you good luck and send you a few reminders.
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
Norman Vincent Peale
- Get enough sleep. Sleep is so important, don’t try to pull an all-nighter. Studies show students who are well rested are more alert and able to concentrate better on their exams. Also, this will help you stay more relaxed.
- Create a study group. If you know other students in the course study together. Two heads are better than one.
- Explain your study material out loud to a roommate/friend. Check your understanding by explaining a concept out loud to a friend. If you can explain it, you can apply it on an exam.
- Find somewhere quiet to study. You can use our office, the library, residence hall study rooms, and the Student Union Building (SUB).
- Late night hours for the SUB: Open until 12 am from December 4th to the 9th.
- Late night hours for the Library: Open 24 hours from December 3rd to the 9th.
- RELAX. Stressing about your exams will drive you crazy, try to stay calm. Go for a run, grab a snack, or change subjects when you get frustrated. Remember these exams are not the end of the world.
Have a happy and safe holiday break. Please remember to request your Letters of Accommodation for the spring semester. See you in 2015!
