    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.

Study Tips

Holy cow! I can’t believe first semester is coming to an end already. The past month has been extremely busy and stressful for myself. This weekend, for me, is going to consist of sleep, coffee, studying, and more studying! Here are some tips to help you with handling your finals…

#1 Be prepared to feel stressed out to the max! That is what finals do to you.

#2 Stay organized. Be sure to get all of your work done. If you’ve procrastinated it until this point, do it now!

#3 Get plenty of sleep. Often times during this time of year students try to pull the “all nighter”…Trust me it doesn’t work. You are better off getting a good nights rest so your brain can function efficiently and help you memorize/learn materials a lot easier.

#4 Eat healthy. Yes, we all love ice cream, cake, and cookies. I know it is the holiday season but you need brain food! Water, fruits, proteins, those nasty green things called vegetables are very healthy and will keep your body functioning at full capacity.

#5 Take study breaks. You are better off studying hard for an hour and taking a half hour break than couping up at your desk or in the library for 5 hours. Your brain can only handle so much and by taking breaks you are giving your brain a mental break to re-energize so you can continue to get after it!

#6 Get some exercise. Whether this is go to the gym to workout, play basketball, do yoga, run, a quick set of jumping jacks, or whatever you prefer…you can’t let your body get bogged down. It will keep you healthy, happy, and awake!

#7 Spend time with friends. You don’t want to get your body completely out of wack. You need some socializing in the mix of finals. No this doesn’t mean put up status after status or tweets…it means go get lunch with a friend or when you take your break chit chat with a friend.

#8 Know your deadlines. Be sure to stay on top of all your classes. You don’t want to forget about one or not know when a final paper is due. If anything get things done early so you can have someone proof read your work to make sure it is done well.

#9 Ask for help. Their are plenty of people here on campus that are willing to sit down with you and help you with a paper or material you don’t understand. Don’t be afraid to ask that cute guy or girl if they can help you…don’t get too distracted though!

#10 Be confident. You have prepared yourself well up to this point and you are going to do great. Don’t go into an exam full of fear, you will forget what you’ve learned. Be confident that you know the material and are ready to ace the exam.

Best of luck to everyone with their finals and I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe winter break!
