  • Books I’ve Loved Recently
    By Jay Grummel In the fall my TBR (to be read) shifts from Fantasy to Literary Fiction. I’ve become a mood reader in my college years. Something about the coldness of the fall and winter influences the sadness of the books I’m reading. Recently, a few novels I deem to best of my 2023 reads. […]
  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]

Learning Commons to offer Study on Sunday

The last weekend of the semester can present distractions to students who may want to party.

However, it is important to stay on task before finals start.

Students who need extra help this weekend before finals start can find it at the Learning Commons.

The Learning Commons in Jerome Library is offering Study on Sunday this Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Academic coach at The Learning Commons Amanda Dandino said it is a big study session with snacks provided.

“We just want people to know there is a place to study where people will be available to offer help,” Dandino said.

If students need the extra time before finals week starts, she said the library is always available.

“This is a pivotal time for students to own their skills and put them to the test,” Dandino said. “The most important part is to avoid distractions.”

Some tips that she gave for students trying to study this weekend are:

1.) Prioritize— Study for the exams in the order you will take them. The one you have next should be your top priority, Dandino said.

2.) Organize— Keeping all materials straight will help students stay on task.

3.) Take breaks— Allow yourself time to take a break every now and then. Some downtime prevents burnout, Dandino said.

4.) Alternate— Don’t study the same subject for too long. This will prevent tedium. Switch subjects and set timers.

5.) Avoid distraction— Study in a distraction-free area. Minimize the chance that you’ll lose focus. For instance, turn off your phone, Dandino said.
