Ahh…Midterms. The papers meant to cause you much stress and torment about 2 months before your finals cause you even more stress and torment, but never fear! No, on second thought, fear, fear with every scary bone in your body. The Midterms are Here!
Although, midterms are a great way to prove your prowess in class as well as show your professor that you are truly a bright intellectual, or, if you’re like me, it’s a time of regretting not paying more attention in class and studying all the material at the last minute. Good times. Luckily, we are not alone in this war of valor and procrastination. Professors understand that midterms and finals are some of the hardest academic times in a student’s career, so if you are terrified of exams as much as I am, it’s best if you take and cherish the help they provide to you, such as study guides and access to previous lectures. Even if you aren’t sure as to what to study, your professor should be willing to help point you in the right direction.
Finally, the midterms are done, your coffee reserves are depleted, and your brain is dealing with the after effects of exploding from an information quantity overload. Now, all you have to do is deal with the slightly not so stressful homework and class projects due the following week, but don’t worry there is plenty more that SXU provides than stressful assignments and we will discuss what those things are next time. Good luck readers and until next time, enjoy life.
