Hey Wildcats!

Today's the day - REGISTRATION is upon us! Hope you're well-rested and were able to wake up nice and early to get those classes! If you forgot, no worries - just try to get that done as soon as possible to increase your chances of getting the classes you want. Remember, soon EVERYONE will be able to get in and change their classes around, but this week is just for you lucky ducks!

We've only got a few weeks left, so let's finish strong. This edition is all about studying! We know finals are coming up on the horizon, and now's the time to prepare for them. We've been there and have put together our very best tips and tricks to make sure you thrive this finals season!

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

4/21: Freshman priority registration begins at 6:00am and continues through 8:00pm on 4/27/14.
  • We understand registration can be somewhat of a process (especially when it's 5:55am), but bear down on and keep trying to register as early as possible to get the classes you want!
4/28: Registration becomes open to all degree seeking students to swap, drop, add courses.
  • It's a registration free-for-all! This is the point where everyone can go back into UAccess and rearrange their schedule. (It's also your chance to snag a seat in that previously closed class!)
Office Hours...Who Needs 'Em? Well, most of us do. Ciara's blog will share a few key points to remember before heading into your professor or TA's office.

Are you struggling in class? Do you study like crazy and still do poorly on the tests? Maybe you should consider getting a tutor. Hannah talks about the struggle to give in and get help from a tutor in her blog, "Don't Suffer Through Classes."

Do you ever wonder what students with other majors do? What classes do they take? What does a typical day look like? Well we wondered that too so we decided to come up with photo blogs about some of our majors. Check out a day in the life of a Conservation Biology major. Also, check out why Valeria loves studying Middle Eastern and North African Studies.

Studying is something most college students procrastinate doing because it isn't always students favorite thing to do. Well here is a guide that includes tips to make studying fun, Bear Down and Study Up!
4/21 & 4/22: Schedule an appointment for the University of Arizona Medical Center Blood Drive between 12:30-7:00pm.

4/23: Make a reservation for the In-Depth Tour at the Pharmacy Museum from 10:00-11:30am.

Think Tank is a wonderful resource if you need that extra help to get you through finals, and best of all it's FREE! There are several locations on campus, and they offer tutoring for Math, Chemistry, English, Spanish, French, and much more. 

Office Hours are a resource most students shy away from, but not to worry! Let Ciara's blog help you prepare for your next visit to your instructor's office hours. 

Smart Phones are a fantastic resource to help you academically! (Take that, older generations!)  Download some of these useful apps and get your study on!

Study Groups help students learn more effectively. Reserve a room at the library so that your study group time is in a quiet environment. The study rooms have a white board, markers, and a spacious study area. 

You have a test next week that you are in no way prepared for.  There's so much material to study and you have no idea where to start.  Don't panic!  Just check out Vero and Kaelyn's photo tutorial of helpful tips on "How to Create Study Plans."
