Those of you that know me know I am a huge basketball fan. As you prepare to enter the final exam week, this is akin to heading into the NCAA Tournament. It is the end of a long season. Players are weary. Students are weary. This is the time to marshal your efforts in a focused manner to perform your very best in this critical week. It is not going to perfect. The question is are you going to shrink under the pressure or rise to the occasion? My challenge to you is to do the latter! First, get yourself organized and make a plan. When are your exams scheduled? What is your game plan? Reviewing past exams? Working with tutors, SI Instructors, TAs and faculty to resolve any lagging questions? There are numerous resources to assist you, but they only help if you take advantage of them. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help! As your coaches and instructors, we are here to assist you and help you succeed. Best wishes for a productive and successful final exam week.
