3 Professors Offer Finals Advice

I know, I know. It’s finals week, so we don’t necessarily love our professors right now. However, they are probably the best resource we have. I reached out to professors at Loyola to see what advice they had for a successful finals week.

Here is what they said: 

“Take advantage of every resource your professors offer you to help with final exams, papers and projects. If they hold a study session, go. For projects or papers, make sure to read the instructions carefully so you know what’s expected. And if you have any questions, be sure to ask the professor for help or clarification.” —Professor Lee Hood, School of Communications.

“I think my advice would be to prioritize—make sure to spend your limited time wisely during finals week. I would also remind students that it is only a week, and that there will be plenty of time to recuperate (i.e., sleep!) the following week.” – Professor Megan Sholar, Interdisciplinary Honors Program.

“Study while listening to Mozart (it will help you remember better).  Don’t eat junk food. Get some sleep. Do what helps you focus.” — Professor Elfriede Wedam, Department of Sociology.

Hang in there, it’s just one more week! Then you never have to see your least favorite professors again. Happy Finals!
