It's time for the 'rest' of the semester!

Historically, March can be known as a time when the only thing motivating students is the promise of Spring Break looming in the not-so-distant future. What you may or may not already have in your mind is the fact that all the rest of the semester lies beyond the break period. As such, follow these tips below to get the most out of your Spring rest period and get ready for the rest of the semester!

  • Take time away during Spring Break - Whether you plan to head to your hometown or are staying around the Platteville area, budget yourself at least 1-2 days to disconnect from school and catch up on the things you love! Consider binge watching a series on Netflix or getting active and going on a run/walk - anything that motivates you. Taking time to reconnect with the things you love will pay off when school comes back in session.
  • Plan reoccurring time away - Make an effort to plan 30 minutes to an hour per week that you dedicate to yourself and the things you love! By giving yourself something to look forward to during the week, you may make the requirements of schooling seem a tad easier!
  • Gear up for the rest of the semester- Take some time over break to review your classes' syllabi and prepare for what's coming next. Between final projects, homework assignments, papers, and exams, take some time to make sure that you're ready for the second half of the semester. By staying on top of what comes next, you'll be much more likely to succeed when that assignment comes around!
  • Catch up with the rest of your classmates - Remember that you aren't in your classes alone! Now is a great time to reach out to fellow classmates who may be on your wing or in your building and start your own study sessions. Utilize your resources in the Residence Hall and put all of your minds together! Studying with the rest of your classmates can make the work more fun and impactful!
