Meet Jack, a student at Duke University in North Carolina. Originally from Palo Alto, California, he wanted to see a different part of the county while hopefully eventually moving back to California after his studies are complete. What do you love about your school and what do you plan on majoring in? I love the slow-paced culture, the beautiful campus and the freedom to take the classes that interest me most. Without a declared major, I will most likely take the path of an Economics major, which was my favorite subject in high school. I enjoys its complexity, making it an interesting and necessary addition to our lives. What are your favorite things to do outside of school? Outside of school I am a part of the Motor sports club, building and racing go-karts, Water Polo Club and Kappa Alpha Order. I enjoy all three of these activities equally, so they heavily take up the majority of my time. How do you use technology and what are a couple of your favorite apps? I am on my phone for a few hours every day and enjoy using various apps such as Balloons Tower Defense, Snapchat, Instagram, StudyBlue and Fantasy Football. I spend most of my time studying on a computer due to personal ease and better visibility. I find myself using my mobile device for last minute refreshers all the way up to test time. How do you incorporate StudyBlue into your daily routine? I love the online flashcard feature. I always add new sets to my decks and I study it daily, allowing me to spend less time making cards and more time spent actually studying them. Have any advice to your fellow students? My advice to students is that everyone has a different study techniques, but online flashcards can make a huge difference when compared to traditional flashcards. Keep up with your work and cards so that you don't have to cram for your exams!
