    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Only Finals Stand In the Way

As a freshman in college finals can get really stressful! I’ll be the first to agree with this statement. With summer looming about a week away for most students at CSS, it can be hard to focus on studying. It is key not to mentally check out at this point in the year. The biggest key I have learned in college which was crucial for my first semester finals is time management.

Being well-organized helped me set up enough time to study for each final while not getting stressed or burnt out. Writing out a list is a great way to organize what all you have to get done and what you need to study for. Understand what finals will be easier for you so you can allow more time for other/more difficult finals. Be sure to print out any study guides or practice exams that will give you extra help and be sure to ask your professors for help on questions you don’t rememeber going over during the semester.I find it helpful sometimes to work in study groups because when others ask questions, it may be a question you had as well. These are just some suggestions, I know everyone studies and prepares in their own unique ways.

One thing to stay away from during your finals preparation is procrastinaton. Procrastination is the word you have to kill while studying for finals because it won’t get you anywhere and is the enemy to time management. The best way to stay away from this is by understanding everything you have to get done and not waiting until the last minute. Making lists, schedules, reminders will help you stay on task. If you haven’t yet, I certainly rec0mmend you start studying and organizing as to not get overwhelmed.

Just be confident, stay organized, and do your best…Summer is so close!
