Emi was recently nominated for Student Employee of the Year. Emi started her time at the ASC as a tutor leading chemistry and biology groups. A year later, she became a tutor-mentor. In both of these roles she has had a huge impact on students learning and growth. Emi is also talented beyond her role as a peer leader. Emi worked along side professional staff members to design and create new branding and marketing materials for the ASC. All of her work will leave a lasting impression on the ASC. Congrats, Emi! We can not thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication to the ASC.
Please note the ASC will have modified hours of operation over spring break! Enjoy your break and stay safe, Cyclones!
”Studying for a test is quite a long process for me. About 3-5 days prior to a test I look through all the PowerPoints my professor has given to me. I then read through all my notes as I tend to write down many notes about ideas my professor explicitly said. I will then read the book of my class has one to answer any questions I may have. Then depending on my classes will decide what I do next. I will either make flashcards online for exams with a lot of terminology (ex. Anatomy) or I will use practice problems from practice test my professors give me (ex. Chemistry). Whenever I study I like to talk to myself to find relations between many topics that may be on my test.” -Alexa B. #academicsuccess #iowastateuniversity #examprep #iowastatecyclones #helpingcyclonessucceed
”To prepare for an exam, I like to use practice tests and end of chapter problems. This is especially helpful for science and math exams. If the test involves memorizing structures or processes, I like to draw them out. Instead of drawing it the same way, I like to start at different points in the process or change the components of the structure. Looking at Bloom’s Taxonomy, I would be preparing for the exam in applying and analyzing levels.” -Rebekah B. #academicsuccess #iowastateasc #iowastateuniversity #examprep #midterms
I always know when my exams are going to be because I write everything in my planner. When I know I have an exam coming up, I try to get all of my other work done and work ahead. I tend to try to be done with this about 2-3 days before the exam. This allows me to put all of my focus and effort into preparing for the exam so my mind is not on other tasks. - Nate S #iowastateuniversity #iowastateasc #academicsuccess #examprep #focus
”When I know I have an exam during the week, I like to spend my weekend relaxing and mentally preparing. I am a really big fan of brewing a hot cup of tea and curling up with my favorite book. This allows me to have some downtime before preparing for my exam. Once my exam is roughly three days out, I prepare the content and ensure I know each topic that I’m expected to know. I like to skim the chapters in my book and the notes I take in class. Because I am in mostly math intensive classes, I spent the remaining time going through practice problems to test my understanding. I go into my exam with a positive attitude and know that I am well-prepared and ready to do my best!” -Alexa P. #iowastateuniversity #iowastateasc #academicsuccess #examprep #midterms

”My favorite place to study or do homework is in the warmth of my own bed. I like being able to cuddle up with my blankets and be in a comfy spot. I like to study in my room as I tend to get distracted by those around me. I also have to have TV on in the background as I cannot study in silence.” -Alexa B. #iowastatecyclones #iowastateuniversity #helpingcyclonessucceed #academicsuccess
