Meet Clint, originally from Louisville, Kentucky and a graduate student attending Eastern Kentucky University. Clint enjoys the small campus, heart and abundance of pride from his school and is majoring in Clinical Psychology with a focus on the Deaf population. Why did you chose your major? I choose this path because, being Deaf myself I noticed that there is a major discrepancy between the mental health needs of Hearing people and members of the Deaf community. What are some of your hobbies and plans after school? Outside of school, I enjoy getting together once a week to play cards or watch a movie for pure relaxation. After graduation, I am planning on pursuing a Doctorate. Do you prefer to study on a Mobile Device or a computer? Why? I use a mobile device for roughly 8 hours a day on and off, and prefer to use my mobile device to study vocabulary-heavy concepts. Some of my favorite apps include Noteability, iStudies Pro, Candy Crush, StudyBlue, and Tumblr. When I need to visualize concepts or images, I turn to the aid of my computer. How do you best use StudyBlue and do you have any advice for fellow students? In between classes I finds myself pulling open StudyBlue to go over class notes, definitions, or important concepts before the next class begins. I turn my study sessions into games, and I am able to create little quizzes to see my score gradually rise. These “games” help make learning the material fun and interesting opposed to the traditional note taking style. My advice to students is that just 15 minutes a day on StudyBlue can cause your grades to skyrocket. Studying for 2 to 3 hours straight doesn't allow your brain to rest at all and you will begin losing information. Get up and stretch!
