As the end of the semester approaches, freshmen through seniors are preparing for their final exams. As you start to study, here are some tips to help you get through your exams a little easier.
When pulling a late night study session, it’s important to eat some- thing so you don’t crash at 4 a.m. Everyone knows that Harris Teeter is open 24 hours, but if you don’t want to make the trip across Warwick there are some other options.
If you’re in the library, Einstein’s food is always an option, but various places around Newport news deliver to CNU, and specifically to the library. Asian Grill and Chanellos Pizza deliver straight to the library, so if you’re doing some last minute studying, take a break and get some Chinese food or pizza. Asian Grill offers the regular Chinese food options, but with an added General Tso’s tofu for vegetarians. Chanellos has both sandwiches and pizza, and if you’re studying with a group of friends, try the gigantic 20” Big Boy pizza. Asian Grill delivers until 11 p.m. while Chanellos Pizza stays open until 3 a.m.
After a full night of studying and no sleep, breakfast in the Commons can refuel you for the day ahead. the best thing to get is an omelet cooked by the always-smiling Miss Virginia.
If you’re stressed out from all the studying, sometimes exercising can be just what you need to give you the energy boost to finish up that last paper. the Noland trail is a great place to take a walk or go for a jog to relieve some pre-finals stress.
The freeman Center closes at mid- night and has a variety of options for working out. From basketball and volleyball courts to weights and treadmills, there’s a great workout waiting for anyone in the Freeman Center.
After midnight, the only place on campus to get a workout is the out- side basketball court. next to James River hall, the court has enough light to shoot around during a quick study break.
During the day, study spots in the main parts of the Trible Library can be hard to come by so CNU students have to get creative. the DSU has couches spread throughout the second floor that offers a comfortable spot for students to study.
Even though it’s winter the weather has been warm enough on some days to study outside. On the great lawn or on benches next to the fountain, the outdoors can be a great place to study on a nice day. or, you can set up a hammock like sophomore Stephen Plotz and read in the sunshine.
In the library, the best place to study is all the way behind the collections of books. Behind the stacks there is a section with couches and cubicles that is usually quieter than the regular library.
