What is your favorite feature on StudyBlue & why do you love it?
My favorite feature on StudyBlue is the mobile app! I love it because I can flip through my deck and study while I’m waiting in line or walking to class.
How do you incorporate StudyBlue into your daily/weekly routine?
I suffer from chronic prochrastinitis, so I don’t really have a routine. I incorporate studying with StudyBlue into my texting routine by strategically placing the SB app icon next to my text messaging icon on my phone.
Do you have any advice or tips for students on how to use StudyBlue? Specifically for your major?
For music majors, adding audio to flash cards makes studying for musical identification exams so much easier and less stressful!
Do you have any advice for students on how to prepare for exams?
Sleep. Find one reliable study buddy to meet with regularly for the entire semester, especially when you are taking a difficult course. Work on homework together, problem solve, discuss reading materials, and exchange note cards. When it’s time to take an exam, just review and practice. And finally sleep.
What is your favorite website or blog to visit during a study break?
I love Facebook & Pinstagram, but I try to avoid these sites while I’m studying.
Why do you study?
I want to have good grades and be able to contribute in class discussions. I also want to get my money’s worth. My motivation is that I am passionate for what I do.
