Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Try not to put things off to the last minute, and don’t be afraid to take advantage of all the resources available, especially review sessions and professor’s office hours.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: Try to make study sheets for each chapter consolidating key formulas, definitions, etc. These will be useful for exams and finals.

My Time Management Strategy: My time management strategy is to do a little bit of work for each class every day. That way I am always up to date on what is happening in every course and I am never falling behind. As well, if I take some time to go over the material that was just presented in lecture soon after I feel like I have a better understanding of the material, and then when I have to study for an exam it’s not overwhelming. 

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Some of the resources I have taken advantage of at Stevens include: tutors, the walk-in tutoring center, and the academic support center review sessions.

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? I enjoy the community aspect of Stevens and how many familiar faces you see in classes and on campus.
