Tips on how to study for your midterms

Yes, it’s that time – midterm season. The time when you’re faced with a bunch of tests halfway through the semester. And, as you are discovering it, it can be a stressful time. So, how do you cope? Well, there are several ways.

The Freshman 15 blog on Seventeen magazine’s site suggests you:

  • Find some time for yourself, even if it’s something as simple as listening to music.
  • Eat some comfort food. Maybe macaroni and cheese.
  • Sneak in a nap.

But, we know that a lot of that stress comes from test anxiety. And test anxiety comes from not being as well prepared for the test as you can be. Fortunately, there are many resources out there to help you study for your midterms and relieve some of that stress.

Mary Coller, the director of our Academic Advising Center, also has some test-taking strategies that may help you get through mid-term season.
