Meet Emily: StudyBlue Ambassador from Santa Rosa, CA

Meet Emily, a student at UC Davis from Santa Rosa, California.

What do you love about your school and what are you majoring in?

I love the community, the small town, yet a large student body, and how good my school is and how close it is to the mountains. I am double majoring in Economics and Sociocultural Anthropology. I love that with my economics major I get to study why people do what they do through rational thinking. I love anthropology because I am able to study cultures, political science, and history all in one.

What is your favorite activity to partake in outside of school?

I am on the UC Davis Alpine ski and snowboard team, so outside of class I can be found on the nearby mountains, snowboarding. I can also be found rock climbing at the local gym. After graduation, I see myself in Colorado working for a real estate company, or at least at a rock climbing gym.

How much time do you spend on your mobile device and what are your favorite applications?

On average, any given day, I will spend 4 or 5 hours total looking/playing/or studying on my phone. I spend around 2 hours every time I re-listen to a lecture on my phone as well. My favorite applications include Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Smartvoice (a recording application that I use to record and re-listen to lectures) and StudyBlue.

What do you love about StudyBlue and how do you use it?

Neither of my majors really require the need for flashcards, but when it comes to studying for midterms and finals, I will use StudyBlue to work on memorizing terms that I cannot grasp. My favorite feature is that I can use it on my phone. It is so convenient that I can study without lugging my computer around.

Any advice for students on how to prepare for exams?

I always say prepare sooner than later. I hate cramming which leads to unnecessary stress, therefore I can be found preparing for a midterm at least a week in advance.
