How to Study Properly

Surely people have their own ways of studying. I’ve used the flashcard technique, make-an-outline technique, and just-reread-the-whole thing technique.

Asking for Help

One thing about college that I learned. The classes are much more difficult than in high school and I have gone to lecture and sometimes think the teacher was speaking Latin. And when I am studying my notes, I can’t figure out what these symbols and letters mean.

Transitioning to University at 22

“Are you a freshman?” This is my least favorite question to be asked, considering almost every student living on campus is 1-4 years my junior. Queue the awkward laugh and explenation of being a first-year-transfer-second-semester-sophomore who is almost 23 years old, and alas you have my first interaction with almost everyone I meet. Needless to say, I was … More Transitioning to University at 22
