Midterms Week at FUS: 5 Tips for Success!

Image
Welcome back or welcome to Adventures at Franklin! It is midterms week at Franklin University Switzerland. Obviously this week has been a difficult one, and I am planning to write about everything that's transpired, but for now the show must go on. We still have midterms to take, and this week is high-paced and stressful for everyone. Our time and energy are luxuries, so here are some tips that may help provide an idea for where to allocate our time and energy, and culminate in success (hopefully!).

1. Review and revise. This tip is pretty obvious. For most of us, in life and at Franklin, if you put the time and effort into preparation, you can succeed.

I have Franklin University Switzerland in brackets because most of this list can really apply to any long weekend anywhere.

1. Travel. The majority of FUS students tak…

Welcome back or welcome to Adventures at Franklin! It’s been exactly a year since the last post, but I promise it will not be a year till the next one! I won’t cover everything from the past year, but I will briefly recap the happenings of the Franklin community since entering the new decade. I may or may not also introduce myself at the end ;) as the proverbial blogging authorship torch has been passed to the next generation of Franklin, to yours truly. 

Outside of Franklin, there are many talking points from this new decade. Just to name a few, there have been: historical moments (#Parasite), tragic deaths (#KB24), politics (#Brexit), and we are barely 8 weeks into 2020. Similarly, there are lots of things happening at FUS. It’s the start of spring semester which also means:
Sadly, we lost some faces from last fall as they study abroad, return to their home institutions or move on to a new adventures, but we have some new faces on campus! According to -not the most reliable- sources (…
