Finals are just around the corner...

Once again it is finals week at WSU. Students are beginning to study and cram for their exams. For some studying is easy, but for others studying can be a struggle. As I was browsing the internet I came across some effective study tips and ideas to help everyone during this crucial time of year. Here is what I came up with:

1. Find a place where you won't be interrupted or distracted. This could vary from the library, Starbucks, Daily Grind or a quiet corner in your house.

2. Take a study break. Don't sit for hours studying because your brain needs a break from cramming.

3. Start early. Don't study the day before the test because studying can become frustrating and most students will give up easily.

4. Make sure you ask your professor questions. Don't be afraid if you do not understand something. However, make sure you get all your questions answered early. Otherwise, you might not be as prepared for the exam.

5. EAT! Your body needs food to function. I would suggest preparing study snacks, such as apples, pretzels or even smart pop. Choose something healthy...so you feel good while studying!

* Hope these easy tips will help and everyone has a successful finals week!

Moving your 'stuff ' anytime soon?!

As the school year comes to an end most students are moving out of their living conditions. For some it might be going back home for good or for others into a different apartment complex. Either way students need a way to move all their belongings from place to place. Personally, this situation applies to me right now because I have to pack up my whole apartment next week and move into a different apartment. Therefore, I have created a list of the best and cheapest ways to move everything. I called around to different places to find the best ways to go about this situation. Here are two of the ideas that I came up with:

> U-haul: is a company that has over 15,00o locations all around the nation. This is extremely convenient because Pullman has two locations with trucks and vans that have various sizes to accommodate you. All information you need will be available at http://www.uhaul.com/

> Coug Closet is also another company that provides onsite storage unit space. For some people all they need is to put their stuff in storage for just the summer months and prefer not to haul their stuff back and forth to wherever they are from. Check out their website for more details: http://www.cougarcloset.com/

*If you want to go even cheaper, I would suggest in finding friends to split a truck or storage unit with you!
