College can be a whole new world when it comes to class workload, quizzes, exams and finals. That’s why we’re sharing our best studying tips for college students. Here’s where to start:
People & Places
Discover how and where you work best. Is it alone at a desk in your bedroom? Or maybe with a group at the campus library. Even an on-site study room in your apartment complex, like at The Village at Bluegrass apartments in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan or Level 27 Apartments in Oxford, Ohio, can be a great go-to spot when it’s time to hit the books.
Noise or No Noise
Just like the people you study with and places you study at, noise can be a huge factor when it comes to how well you concentrate. Try studying in silence, in a public place with background noise, or with music/headphones and see what helps you focus.
You may find that the coffee shop is your best bet for writing those long research papers, or that silence is key to memorizing your next set of flashcards.
Pay Attention & Ask Questions
Next time you decide to take an afternoon nap in class, or play that addicting new game on your phone, think twice. Often times teachers will reveal important exam questions and details that can save you time and stress in the long run. Are the slides online? Is there an exam review happening outside of class?
Don’t be afraid to pull your professor aside after class or visit them during office hours if you are need of some clarification – that’s what they’re there for!
