With each passing day, Christmas is looming closer. With the holiday coming up, it also means the end of another semester here at Snow College. During this time of year it is easy to start procrastinating, and giving up on school work. In order to get good grades for this semester, it is important to keep strong habits of studying and doing homework and turning in assignments on time instead of blowing it off completely.
Besides getting good grades and passing classes, students can enjoy the holidays knowing they did their best and now can forget the rest. In order to fully enjoy the holidays without stress, it’s important to finish the semester strong. Sadie Lawrence, a Snow College student had this to say about working hard through the semester. “You really need to push it near the end, you’ve put in so much work for the whole semester, so you will pretty much get what grade you deserve, depending on how much work you put in.”
With finals coming up, it is a good idea to start studying now and to keep a steady regime that lasts throughout the rest of the semester. Take time out of a busy day to sit down in a quiet room and go over notes from classes. This doesn’t have to take much time, and it will be beneficial in the long run. Studying with other people who have the same goals is also a great idea. Studying with roommates, friends, or other people in the class is a good way to get help from people who also know the material. Another great tip for staying strong through to the end of the semester is to write down what is due on a calendar. In doing this a student can see and remind themselves what they still have to do. It’s also a good idea to set reminders to start working on big projects days or even weeks before they are actually due.
Everyone wants to enjoy the holidays and the time they spend with loved ones. What better way to start the holidays than by ending with good grades?
