Meet Jonathan, a student from San Antonio, Texas, currently attending the University of Texas at San Antonio. What do you love about your school and what is your major? I love this university because of the good vibe around campus. It's a very lively environment filled with different types of people that want to get to know each other. I am currently a Biology major. I chose this major because of a dental program that I want to apply for in the spring. This program would allow me to enroll in dental school a year early, but to do that I have to major in Biology. Owning my own business has been a dream of mine for a while, and becoming a dentist would satisfy that dream. My favorite activity outside of school is, honestly, just hanging out with friends. I don't want to have a boring lifestyle. I like to meet new people and try new things. After graduation, I see myself in a career that provides a service to others. Whether that may be dentistry or not, helping other people is something I'm good at. How much time do you spend on your mobile device? On average, I spend more than six hours a day on a mobile device. I use it for school and leisure. My favorite apps would have to be Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, StudyBlue, and Notability. I use technology for studying about 90% of the time, or about four hours a day. All my notes are electronic, so I rarely use paper notebooks (except for the rare professor who still hates electronics). How do you incorporate StudyBlue into your study routine? I incorporate StudyBlue into my weekly routine by studying the flashcards for biology and history. I read them over maybe three times a week and even more the week of a test. My favorite feature of StudyBlue would have to be the ability to use other people's flashcards. There are instances when I don't have time to create my own, so I search under class materials and I can get right to studying. Any advice for students preparing for exams? My advice is to prepare well in advance. Spread the work over a period of time so that you're less stressed the night before. The night before the test should just be a quick recap.
