It’s the Finals Countdown

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Pistol Pete is ready for finals! How about you?

Finals- the only thing standing between you and summer vacation! We know finals week can be a stressful time, but worry not! #iamokstate has tips to help you get through the week.

Use your time wisely!

Places like Edmon Low or a coffee shop can help minimize distractions so you can maximize your studying! Don’t forget to take short breaks so your brain has time to rest.

Get lots of sleep and eat a balanced diet.

Your body needs all the energy it can get. Choosing a healthy meal over fast food, and sleep over an energy drink, is important if you want to succeed.

Know how you study best.

Do you work best with a study buddy? Find someone from your class! If you work better alone, get a study playlist ready or check out ours on the #okstate Spotify to help you focus.

PROTIP: Take advantage of your professor’s office hours. It’ll almost always give you a leg up on an exam. If you don’t know when the office hours are, find them in the syllabus!

Take advantage of #okstate’s resources and special events.

"Free food. You'll find me there."

Throughout finals week, take a look at the calendar for events around campus like Late Night Cafe (Free pancakes!). There’s also places like the Reboot Center to help you de-stress and refocus. It’s available all semester, but can be extra useful during finals!

What happens to my unused meal plan dollars?

If you’re going to have a meal plan next semester, a certain amount can roll over depending on your current meal plan. If you don’t have a meal plan next semester, consider buying a friend their meal or canned food to donate.

You studied hard, so you don’t need to stress! Just make sure you have everything you need: maybe a scantron from the Student Union bookstore, sharp pencils, a calculator (and definitely a good attitude!).

Don’t worry Cowboys, you got this! Now go out there and crush those finals!
