I am from the rural dirt roads of Botetourt County, Virginia. I choose Longwood because of its size and friendly atmosphere. I am heavily involved in my school and community both here in Farmville and back home in Eagle Rock, Virginia.

I serve as News Editor for The Rotunda, the student newspaper here on campus, and have been writing for the paper since March 2009. I am also a Sergeant-At-Arms for the Longwood University Judicial Board. I have spent this summer discovering the world of online freelance journalism and have quite enjoyed myself.

Are You Sure Today is the Last Day of Classes?


One more week to go, that is if you count exams as a week. It’s hard to believe the final week of classes has come and gone. Many people have already finished their last class of the day. I have one more to go that starts in about an hour. It’s been a busy semester no doubt, but I have really enjoyed my classes and my usual routine.

I say this all the time to people coming to Longwood and when I’m fortunate enough to be able to help out during an Admission Open House. My favorite thing about Longwood is you see the same people walking to class everyday. I don’t think you can say that about many other colleges.

This routine has been something I’ve really grown accustomed to each year, and it’s about to change in January. But I know that I’ll still see some of the same people when I walk to Ruffner or D-Hall. It’s probably the favorite part of my day because I can also count on seeing someone I’ve developed a friendship with.

Back to classes though, it hasn’t hit me that I won’t have to wake up at 9 a.m. Monday morning and drive to campus for class. Just think, this time next week, I’ll be almost done (I have a 3 p.m. Friday exam) with my first semester of my senior year. How quickly time has passed. It’s truly unbelievable.

As I promised you folks, I’ll be posting some study tips tomorrow morning on the blog. I want to make sure everyone knows some good study habits and I’ll be sharing the ones that have worked for me. I think they’ll work whether you are in high school or college.

I wanted to go ahead and tease one of my tips. It’s about eating, and since most people enjoy this activity, I figured it’d be how I’d start out. For the rest, be sure you check the blog tomorrow! Enjoy your last day of classes Longwood!

+Eating is important when it comes to concentrating on your work. Make sure you eat before any of your exams, whether it be 8 a.m. or 5:30 p.m. Food is crucial in focusing and it can help you think, which can in turn help you recall information for your exam. Be sure to eat healthy too–not overload on sugar or coffee. This might cause you to crash before you make it to the exam or cause you extreme tiredness.
