Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Share your news!

Congratulations Lancers on another successful spring semester! To our graduating seniors and grad students, we wish you all the best as you embark on your future endeavors! The UCC is excited to celebrate with you and we ask that you share your news with us! Did you get that internship you were hoping for, the job offer you wanted, or are enrolling in your dream graduate school program? Comment on this blog to share!

Also seniors and grad students, we would love for you to share information about your post-graduation plans using The Outcomes Survey, which should take only 5-7 minutes to complete. The survey was sent to your Longwood email from the UCC director, Mary Meade Saunders, and The Outcomes Survey Team! Whether you are already working, in graduate school, in the process of starting a business, engaged in volunteer service, or still defining your next steps, please complete the survey as soon as possible. Upon completion, your name will be entered in a prize drawing, including iPads and gift cards!

Since a lot can change in the months after graduation, you will be asked to confirm or update your survey responses again in three months, six months, and one year. A prize drawing is conducted after each stage of The Outcomes Survey, so we encourage you to respond at each stage!

Congratulations again everyone! For our seniors and grad students, please know our services continue even after graduation! Our office is also open all summer long!

Finish your semester strong!

 Here are some helpful tips for finishing your spring semester and preparing for final exams!

Get organized:

  • Create a good workspace to prevent distractions
  • Pull all of your notes together
  • Start to make outlines, flashcards, and/or study guides to review what you have learned throughout the semester

Prioritize: 

  • Make a list!
  • Start to map what days and times you can get certain things done
  • Space out final papers, projects, and assignments according to the due dates
  • Knock out the harder tasks first to reduce stress

Go to the library: 

  • Check out fort finals and the quiet study rooms
  • Isolate yourself so that you are free from distractions

Ask for help: 

  • If you’re extremely overwhelmed, seek assistance from a classmate or a professor
  • Studying is always more fun with other people: quiz each other, make study guides, share ideas, compare semester notes, etc.
  • Don’t be afraid or ashamed of asking for help,  sometimes it’s necessary!

Take a break: 

  • Give yourself time to chill and refocus
  • Plan something with your friends
  • Take a nap
  • A great way to reward yourself for studying is to treat yourself to a break when needed!

In the end, don’t forget to celebrate all of your hard work and accomplishments! You deserve it!
