So Now What?

29 Mar

Can you believe that we are half way through the semester? Are you happy with where you are in your classes? Do you know where you stand? These are all questions that should be on your mind. In the meantime, congratulations…we are almost done!


When it comes to school, it is important to evaluate (or reevaluate) yourself and set goals for the rest of the semester.

Evaluation: How are you actually doing in all of your classes and where do you want to be?

Are your grades where you want them to be?

If you answered yes to this question, that’s great. You started off the semester strong! If you are doing well in all of your classes, it is important to think about how you achieved those scores in the past so that you can continue to be successful in the months to come. It is also important to avoid falling victim to the midsemester slump. This can be a downfall for many students. They did well the first half of the semester, so they believe that they can slack off for the rest of the semester. Start strong and finish strong. It may be a lot of work, but in the end it is so worth it.


If you answered no to the previous question, it’s ok! Not everyone has the best luck at the start of the spring semester, but now is the time to turn those grades around. Self-evaluation is really important to pinpoint why your grades are where they are. Important questions to ask yourself are: Did I attend all of my classes? Did I schedule myself enough time to study? Did I keep up with my homework? Did I seek out any help from study groups/ TAs/professors? Whatever the case may be, you have to be honest with yourself and make the changes that you want to see. Now is the time for goal setting. Attend all of your classes and set up a structured study schedule. Keep up with all of your homework. Homework is not only points in the class, it’s also practice for the exam. Don’t be afraid to seek out help from someone. You can ask your friends, TAs, professors, and tutors. Set goals that will make you the most successful in the long run.


In either case it is important to remember that you have half of the semester left to be the best you can be, and to ultimately end strong! Bear Down Wildcats!giphy-21
