We are in week four of the spring semester. By now you might be developing a love/hate relationship with your class. Midterms, projects, and group presentation deadlines are all approaching really quickly. Here are some tips to get you through the rest of the semester:
Considering most of our student population is untraditional - working full-time, having a family, and going to school. I know this is very challenging for most. However, try as hard as you can to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Studies have shown that those with limited sleep time don't last a long stretch and it affects daily routines.
Use Resources Available
Maybe you have difficulty figuring out the best way to study for a test, or best way to retain information while studying. Several study guide resources are available to you. There is probably something that you can find helpful.
If you're really struggling in a class, be proactive and contact Student Academic Success Services now. Do not wait until week 10. The center offers various services including tutoring labs, accounting workshops, accounting lab reviews, and a variety of low cost tutoring options. With advance notice, there is a better chance we'll be able to find you a tutor. For more details, contact Maria Corace at 248-823-1132.
Take Advice from Alums
Walsh alums have been in your shoes before. They've been thru the stressful semesters and learned a few things along the way. Here are a few quotes from alums:
"Try to be proactive and work on your project a little each week. Then it doesn't seem so overwhelming at the end of the semester."
"Effective time management is a vital key to success."
"Do not put assignments off until the last minute; make sure to ask questions; do not skip class; and lastly, listen."
