We are still a few weeks away, here are three tips to get you through your finals smoothly and successfully!
1.Start Studying Now
•Do not wait until the day before the test to cram in all your review material. Start Early! Studying in shorter lengths helps improve your comprehension and retention. This will also make studying more enjoyable and less overwhelming.
•During finals week the last thing you want to think about is the Gym. However, exercising even for a half hour will give you substantial benefits. It will refresh your brain and reduce finals worry!
3.Get some rest
•All-nighters are normally the only option during finals week, but your body needs sleep during finals week. This will help your body rest and retain information. If you cannot fathom getting a full night’s rest during finals week, simply take power naps to keep your mind refreshed and ready!
Be sure to check out our Finals Week Event Calendar. We will have events every day to get you through finals week. Remember, finals will be over soon & summer is around the corner!
March represents many different things for people. Two of the biggest things celebrated during March are the start of Spring and St. Patrick’s Day- what’s not to love about either one of those?! Below you will find some fun facts and information on both that will help you prepare for the celebrations.
Spring Time Greatness

Our clocks will spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 12th
The term Spring or “springtime” refer to the idea of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.
The season Spring brings with it the ability to start enjoying more outside activities that you may not be able to do in the Winter season. These can include: Camping, Fishing, Flying a Kite, Playing Mini Golf & Starting your garden! More activities can be found here!
All Things Green
St. Patrick’s Day, commonly referred to as St. Paddy’s Day, is on March 17th
Corned Beef & Cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish that originated in New York and not Ireland. Find some great Irish recipes here!
The popularity of Shamrocks and Four Leaf Clovers stems from St. Patrick using these plants to explain the holy trinity to the Irish.
