Semester Success

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:

Get Rest

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.

Get Help

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."

What was the one mistake you made from a previous semester that you regret but learned from?
