Are you nervous about the week before finals? Anxious about finals week itself? Ready for Winter break? If your answer is "yes" to all these questions, you might have caught the "Finals Fever".
But, do not worry! You are not alone. Many Albers undergraduates come across the "Finals Fever" in the last two weeks of the quarter. The key to overcome it is to follow a few simple tips and tricks:
Once completing these tips and tricks, remind yourself of what keeps you motivated. If it's your family, give them a call. If it's an off-campus adventure, go try a new coffee place to study at. If it's a friend, make them your study buddy.
Then, the "Finals Fever" will disappear, and you will be prepared for what is to come. You have already made it this far into Fall quarter. Finish strong!

With Thanksgiving Break this week, my mindset has mainly focused on how greatly needed this break is, not on why we have Thanksgiving off. Therefore, I’ve realized that maybe I should begin a list of things I am grateful for.
To start, I am thankful for my family. Without the love and support I receive from them, I would not be here in Seattle today. My morals and beliefs all stem from what I’ve learned from them, and I am eternally grateful for my family.
I am thankful for my professors, Albers, Seattle University, and everything related to school. It’s truly incredible how much I’ve learned and grown since I first came to Seattle in September 2010. Of course, there were some classes that I enjoyed more than others. Even in the classes that I didn’t like as much, however, I learned to think a little differently and become a little wiser. In addition, without the help and support from Albers resources such as the Albers Placement Center in helping hone my resume or from my professors in writing me recommendation letters, I would never have had the confidence to apply for jobs like my current NSM position. I am so grateful to attend a university that cares about its students.
I am thankful for friends. Without them, being at school would be so much bleaker. One of my favorite quotes is: “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust. It couldn’t have been said more perfectly. My friends make my heart swell with love, and I don’t know what I’d do without them.
Finally, I am thankful for my health. I’ve been incredibly fortunate in never having to go to the Student Health Center because I’ve never been too sick (*knock on wood*). However, if you happen to be sick, don’t hesitate to visit the office! And if you’d rather prevent rather than treat, flu shots are available there for $15.
Of course, the list could go on and on, but I thought I’d just share a couple with our blog readers. I am grateful that you took the time to read this! Have a safe, relaxing, wonderful, and food-filled Thanksgiving Break!
