Well folks, it’s that time of year again! Midterms have started in some classes this week, and others are going to happening once we get back from Reading Week. I have already managed to sit through three midterms, and am looking forward to the other half in two weeks.
I know how much trouble I had reviewing for my midterms this week. Everything just seems to pile up when you’re attending classes, learning new material, keeping up on readings and assignments—and trying to review. It’s tough.
That’s why it’s important to take advantage of the time you have over Reading Week. And to make it even easier, the Academic Mentoring Program (AMP) will once again be putting on the “Put the Read in Reading Week” event!
If you’ve never heard of this event before, it’s something you should definitely check out. If you come and study on campus next week (Tuesday through Friday of Reading Week), you can earn a ballot for every hour you spend studying. Studying can be revising, rewriting your notes, catching up on and completing your readings, doing assignments, or meeting for group work—whatever you need to do to be productive this Reading Week.
I know that working on campus is easier for a lot of people: there are less distractions, access to the library and all its resources, and comfy couches you can curl up in. So if you want to be entered into a draw to win a gift card, or some free snacks, stop by the campus next week and get your read on!
Important Note: The campus will be closed on Monday, February 20, for the Family Day holiday. Please don’t try to come to school that day. You will be stuck outside and it won’t be conducive to a positive learning (or studying) environment.
