With Thanksgiving break just around the corner, take this time to breathe. You’ve done incredibly well and with hard work comes a break too! Though it is crucial to remember that final papers and exams are approaching rapidly, it is important to take a break when the opportunity presents itself to prevent burnout.
The Priddy Library at USG is here for you in the days before break to finish up assignments and to meet with classmates for last-minute group projects. Don’t forget you can reserve a study room to gather everyone in one place with a board to help you express your ideas. USG is here for you and wants you to succeed and they are here to help. Please don’t hesitate to stop by the Center for Counseling and Consultation on campus if the stress or anxiety becomes too much this exam season. Whether you have a concern on choosing the right career path or feel like you need to talk, the center is here.
Before break though, make sure to know what assignments are ahead so that if you have any questions or concerns you can meet with your professors. Once it begins, it might be hard to contact someone! Though it may seem like a lot, a break is a time for yourself to use in a way that is right for you. For me, I definitely plan on catching up on sleep and eating a bunch of food, and working on assignments ahead of time to focus on exams when December arrives. But what works for me might not work for others, so be sure to know yourself and understand your individual needs to ace those exams.
Finally, be sure to catch up on sleep and eat a bunch of food! That way you’ll crush your exams and finish the semester proud and successful. Before you know it, it’ll be winter break! I hope that everyone will have an amazing Thanksgiving break and will have a happy rest of the semester. Good luck!
