    Tianna's Bio:
    I'm a nursing intended major, biology/psychology minor and a part of the Honors program. In addition to school, I also work at McCarthy Manor as a CNA. In my "freetime" I like to explore Duluth, hang out with the girls, color, go to concerts, fish, hunt, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend time with my family and my boyfriend. I love Scholastica and Duluth and can't wait to spend the next couple of years here.

Surviving Finals Week

Finals at Scholastica start on Monday,  December 19, 2011. As I know this can be a stressful time for myself and fellow students, I figured I’d share a couple of tips to tackle the week! You may think that some of these sound very simple, but believe me, when you are buried in the books you sometimes forget the smallest things.

1. Be Informed: Know when your finals are. If you are unsure or need to double check, check the Registrar’s Website for the schedule or ask an instructor.

2. Plan: Make a schedule of when your finals are and what is required for each. Having some sort of a plan or layout of the tasks at hand will reduce levels of stress greatly.

3. Use Resources: If you don’t understand information that may be on your final, don’t be afraid to ask your instructor, a fellow student, or consult a subject tutor. Have a paper to write and need help? Stop by the writing center.

4. Stay Healthy: Even though all you may feel like doing is locking yourself away in your room or hiding in the library, don’t let studying consume you. It’s very important to continue to eat on a regular basis, sleep, and stay active. Stress has been shown to lower one’s immune system. Take care of yourself and avoid sickness.

5. Take Breaks: Your brain can’t handle a bunch of information being crammed into it all at once. I recommend blocking out no more than two hours for a subject and then take a ten minute break. Get away from your study area and move around.

And most importantly…..

6. Study: Your professors provide you with all of the tools you need to do well in their classes. Don’t sit back and think you’ll be ok. Take the time to study and your hard work will pay off.


P.S. 24 Hour Quiet Hours start on Saturday, December 17th at 11pm. Remember to be respectful in this manner. All violations during finals week will be assessed with triple fines.
