Students Guide to The Library: At Finals

Christina Driscoll

Double Major: Management and Marketing

Class of 2019

Library Tips during Finals:

I go the 3rd floor to study because it is quiet.

Find a space large enough and lay out all your material.

Wear comfortable clothes because you will be there a while.

Bring snacks and water.

 

 

Allessandro Millor

Major: International Business

Class of 2017

Library Tips during Finals:

I mostly use the library for group study space during finals.   I also use the group study rooms on the 3rd floor.

 

 

 

Lois Morais

Major: Psychology

Class of 2017

Library Tips during Finals:

She suggests coming during lunch or dinner hours because there are fewer people.  The library is a great place to get away from your dorm environment.  It takes you away from the distractions of other students.

 

 

Madison Wong

Major: Architecture

Class of 2019

Library Tips during Finals:

Sleep and time management.  Don’t put things off until the last minute.  Snacks are important!

 

 

 

 

 

Bryan Smith

Major: Architecture

Class of 2019

Library Tips during Finals:

Procrastination is your biggest enemy; manage your time and set goals for yourself of how much work you’d like to accomplish that day.  Sleep! All-nighters just end up hurting you in the end and will make your work sloppy.  Listening to chill music is essential.

 

 

 

Daisy Alves

Major: Architecture

Class of 2019

Library Tips during Finals:

Go to the library every chance you get.  Go to the third floor, the quietest floor.  Seeing other students working hard and studying away motivates you to study as well.
