There are three weeks left of classes a Ferris State. Or if you want to get really specific, less than two weeks of classes, and then a week of finals. I like to try and make it seem as short as possible. Its incredibly hard to do that though, especially since the weather is warming up and every other school in the world seems to be finishing up their semesters. But, don’t fret! It’s only three short weeks! Here are some tips and tricks to help end the semester strong.
Start studying now. Just because finals are three weeks away doesn’t mean you have to put off studying for another two weeks. Finals are going to roll around and as many college students will discover, they would rather put off studying and go enjoy the weather. Lock yourself in your room or a study room at the library for an hour or two a night and get done as much as you possibly can.
Don’t quit working out. With warm weather comes laziness. It may be super sunny out, but it doesn’t mean that you its acceptable to lay outside all of the time. Go for a jog, take a yoga class, do something! All the exercising will give you a way to take a healthy break from studying as well. Your body and mind will thank you in the end.
Get as far ahead on homework as you possibly can. Nobody really wants to do homework, I know. But do as much as you can before you really lose your motivation to summer. Just because it is warm outside doesn’t mean your grades should suffer!
Prioritize your life! Take a minute to think about what do you want to do before school gets out. Now take another minute to think about all of the things you HAVE to get done before school gets out. Make a list of everything you want to do and prioritize it. It’s a great way to visualize all of the stuff you have to get done before you can let go.
Save some time for fun.
You always have to make some time to have fun with your friends. Spring would not be nearly as cool if it wasn’t spent having fun. Go check out some free concerts, spend some time with friends, and make some great memories to end out the semester.
