Acing your Exams at the SLC

Written by student blogger Danielle Howson

We’ve nearly made it. I can taste it. The culmination of all of our hard work is starting to take shape, the light at the end of the tunnel is appearing but wait…exams.

This time of year can feel like a never-ending stream of caffeinated study sessions; throw in a few tense moments and you’ve got an accurate picture of my month of April. Yet this time around, let’s choose to not let exams get the best of us and instead, redefine our own limits. Every step of the way, the SLC has got you covered.

You may have noticed some changes around here: from the Amphitheatre and Sandbox by DMZ to Seminar Rooms (508, 515, & 516), study hubs are popping up everywhere. In addition to the 7th floor, the 4th floor has also been converted into a quiet study space to help you ace your exams. We are ready for exam season and want to make sure that you are too. Make the most of the SLC’s diverse study spots and its services, including complimentary earplugs to help boost your concentration.

Quick study tip! It’s challenging to stay focused for long periods of time. My trick? Study in intervals. Switch it up: try studying in peace for an hour on the 7th floor, thirty minutes of socializing at the Beach and then hit up the 8th floor for a power hour of reviews (and views). Can’t get enough of studying? The after-hours study space in the POD is just for you.Two students studying at a desk next to a window.

Best of luck on your exams! You’ve got this.
