Tips for Finals Week!

Hello Honorites!

It is almost time for the end of the semester and for the beginning of Finals Week! Here are 5 study tips to get you through Finals Week from the Princeton Review!

1. Be the “explainer”.

Explaining something to someone else is one of the best ways to determine what you have down cold, what you need to take a second look at.

2. Have a study buddy? Don’t split the work.

Have a friend make a study sheet for the final exam separately, then get together after you both are done and review the topics together. That way you are less likely to miss something.

3. Turn the TV off and the music on.

Music can help you focus IF you pick the right songs. Forget brand new albums or your favorite songs that might break your concentration when you need to study. Instead, listen to music you already know all the words to, but don’t feel compelled to sing along.

4. Can’t stop singing? Put everything to music!

See if you can make up new lyrics to your favorite songs that incorporate the formulas or historical dates you have to memorize. Things are a lot easier to remember with a good beat.

5. Read it. Write it. Say it.

Go through your notes and pull out the key points by reading them, re-writing them, then saying them out loud. This method really helps some students commit facts to memory.

What are your plans for after graduating?

AG: Taking a nice break!! I’ll be working in Ithaca over the summer at the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation and then applying for museum fellowships/researching graduate study programs. I would also really like to spend some time traveling abroad.

 

What is your favorite Honors-related memory?

AG: Hanging out with my floor-mates in Lyon Hall (who are still my friends today!)

 

What are you involved in on campus? How has your campus involvement shaped your overall IC experience?

AG: Currently I serve as the President of Feminists United, Co-Student Vice President of Phi Kappa Phi, and a Presidential Fellow in the Division of Student Affairs and Campus Life. My time in the classroom has been essential to my time at IC, but my campus involvements have allowed me to tease out theories in real world situations as well as make connections with my peers across fields of study.

 

What advice do you have for future Honors students?

AG: Enjoy being surrounded by people who question everything! College is a time to be inquisitive of the world and of yourself and I have found my time with Honors students allows me to really explore the questions I have. And when the people around me ask questions, my worldview becomes expanded tenfold. Savor these spaces of inquiry!
