Finals are upon us.

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

  1. 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.
  2. Create a study group. If you know other students in the course study together. Two heads are better than one.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
