Well, the last week of classes is fast approaching (ahem, starting tomorrow!). The fact that this is my last week of college classes is mind-blowing.
If you’ve been reading my blogs this semester, you’ll know that I love giving advice to incoming students and expressing how much I will truly miss Happy Valley when I walk across the stage in the Bryce Jordan Center on May 9.
The good news is, my advice will not stop now just because we are in the home stretch and closing in on the end of the semester. The bad news is, this is my second to last blog post and I will be saying goodbye to Penn State in less than two weeks.
With the final week of classes approaching, I want to give some advice to students on how to handle their last week of classes and prepare for finals week.
1.) First of all, pat yourselves on the back for making it through the year and embrace it for a minute!
2.) After your inner happy dance, remember to finish off the semester on a strong note. Even though it’s the last week of classes, that last week can make a difference with your final grade and how you prepare for finals week.
3.) Make sure that all of your final assignments are handed in and reach out to your professors if you have any questions or concerns about your grades (don’t worry, we’ve all done it and I still do it!)
4.) If you have a daily planner, I suggest making day-to-day To Do Lists so you don’t forget an assignment or to write a paper. If you don’t have a daily planner, I highly recommend buying one, because they are blessings to have during the academic year.
5.) STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! Your final exam schedule can be found here. Go onto the Elion and check out your schedule. So when you get your exam schedule midway through the semester, figure out how you’re going to manage your time so you can study for your finals.
Follow these five tips and you should be golden during finals week!
For the Glory…
