You may have seen a booth labelled “Own Your Midterms” set up between the hours of 11-1 all week long in various places around the SAIT campus. The event was created to allow student a chance to speak with academic coaches about how to properly study for a midterm, what is needed in order to be successful, and how to deal with the stress of midterm season.
I think this event is crucial because a lot of people don’t have the necessary study skills to do well on their midterms -Julian McNamee, SAIT student
Its a very busy time for some SAIT students who face exams right now. Many students such as Julian McNamee feel this is a very important program for all schools to have. “I think this event is crucial because a lot of people don’t have the necessary study skills to do well on their midterms,” McNamee said.
We decided to kinda get a little more mobile and set up in different locations across campus- Pablo Zanetta, SAIT Librarian
The organizers of the event have noticed a bigger spike in foot traffic when it comes to students stopping by and asking for help this year. Event organizer and SAIT librarian, Pablo Zanetta, said a big reason for the events success is due to their decision to set up around campus, rather than just the library in years previous. “We decided to kinda get a little more mobile and set up in different locations across campus to just reach more people, and we just want to have them prepped and ready to go to deal with stress and taking on their exams.”
For students looking to get some last minute advice on how to master their exams, or catch a nutritious snack to fuel their brains and stomachs before the big test, the “Own Your Midterms” table will be set up for one final time on Friday in the Reg Erhardt Library from 11-1.
