Tip of the Week from your Peer Advisers: Moderate your study habits

Study in increments and designate study breaks

  • For example: study diligently for 30-45 minutes, and then relax for 5-10 minutes (grab a snack, watch a YouTube video, go for a walk around your residence hall or the library or TECH center)

It has been supported in cognitive psychological research that studying in "chunks" helps a student to retain more information from their study sessions. By taking breaks, your mind naturally remembers information from the beginning and the end of a study "chunk", therefore leading to more overall retained knowledge. And always remember, put that incessantly distracting cell phone away until it is time for your study break! They will make or break a good study session.

What's going on in Philly?

Did you know that the brand new Dilworth Park at City Hall is now open?

There are plenty of fun activities to do there from outdoor movies and concerts, to StylePop art, which brings forward clothing, jewelry, and crafts from a variety of designers.

Before the cold weather strikes the city, this would be a great get-away from campus with your friends, family, or significant other. The best part is, it's only a subway ride away! Get on the Broad street line and get off at the City Hall stop, and you will be right there. Simple enough!
