I can’t believe that we are already halfway through first semester! It feels like the first day of school was just a few days ago. At this point, life at Purdue can get pretty crazy. Between homework, group projects, extra-curricular activities, and now studying for midterms it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. I think the libraries really are the best place to study. They’re usually much quieter than other places on campus which really helps me focus. However, while studying is extremely important in order to do well, it’s also important to take a few study breaks to clear your head. My friends and I usually go to the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center (CoRec) to relieve some of the stress that school brings on. There are also so many activities on campus that are great to go to if you’re in need of a break. Go to a volleyball game and cheer on the Boilermakers, watch a free movie at Flicks at Fowler, or just walk around campus with friends! We even carved pumpkins this weekend as a fun study break. This time of year is stressful, so make sure to have some fun too.
