Midterms are coming! Are you ready for them? Living in a college apartment is completely different than living in the dorms. Living in the dorms makes it hard to study, especially if you have a loud roommate or people constantly screaming in your hallway. Though these things might be true for off campus as well, it is usually a little bit more quiet! Another helpful thing is that having your own room allows you to lock the door, stick in your headphones, and focus on just studying. This allows you to keep on studying without worrying that your roommate will bust through the door any minute with 10 of her friends to crowd your tiny little dorm.
Studying in your own room in your off campus apartment also gives you the freedom to plan your room to your liking! Some people prefer to study in the dark and move their desk as far away from the window as they can. Others prefer to study in a more open space, which makes studying in your living room a lot easier (only if your roommate/roommates aren’t home and bugging you).
Knowing how to study is also extremely important for your college career. Are you a note taker or do you prefer to highlight your textbook (or both)? Do you prefer a clean desk or a messy one? Knowing how to get yourself to study can lead to better grades and a better understanding of what you are actually learning in class.
