Now that winter is here, we’d just like to remind you of some important maintenance tips. If you will be leaving after finals to go home for break, it’s important to keep your heating unit on a particular setting. To prevent your unit and pipes from damage and freezing up, please remember to set your unit on auto at a minimum of 64 degrees.
Make sure you’re following us on social media so you can stay informed about our upcoming events!
Reminders & Updates
If you’re going home for the break, remember that January rent is still due on January 1, and you have until January 5 to pay to avoid any late fees. If you need assistance setting up your online portal or writing checks/money orders, come to the office and we’ll give you a hand.
Tips to Help You Through Finals Week
The time that you’ve been dreading all semester is here: final exams. This is a very stressful time for everyone, so remember to take a minute just for you.
Studies have shown that when you take one minute just for yourself every 30 minutes, your grades will improve. Cramming has proven not to work because you’re stressed, exhausted, and less likely to absorb everything that you’re trying to learn. Taking a minute just for you will allow you to breathe and reset your mind as you continue to study.
After your minute, make sure to take 10 more minutes to review what you’ve learned, and then 20 more minutes of new information before you take another break.
Just thinking about final exams gets stressful, so make sure to breathe and prepare the right way. Whether you’re writing papers, presenting, or taking an exam, preparation is the best way to get an A.
Here are some professor-approved study tips:
- Drink water, not soda or energy drinks.
- Eat fruits and veggies to give you natural energy.
- Turn your phone off as you study to lessen distractions.
- Find a study partner so you can quiz each other.
- Use the on-campus tutoring centers or peer-led groups.
- Talk to your professors! It shows that you care and are trying to do well.
- Make sure to eat a good breakfast the day of your exam. It truly is the most important meal of the day.
