We are in the home stretch! School is almost out! At first it seems like a cinch and we think it will fly by. But then, the temperature outside hits 70 degrees and all of a sudden those last couple of weeks seem like eternity. This is the time when most of us find it really difficult to make it to class and really easy to go out and enjoy the long-awaited sunshine. Resist these temptations!
These last two months are still important! Think about all the projects you have due at the end of the semester and the finals coming up in May that have a huge impact on your final grade. Unfortunately, almost half of your grade for most classes is from the last month. This is no time to start slacking off!
The important thing to keep in mind is that it will be over before you know it. So buckle down and remember classes are still in session. To keep your head in the game, take a walk with some friends in between classes, bring your books outside and study there, or eat your lunch on a bench outdoors. This way, you still get to enjoy the nice weather and soak up your Vitamin D without cutting class and slacking off in your studies. Also, enjoy your time off. If you have fun in your free time, then you won’t feel so motivated to blow off classes to have some fun.

Shout-Out To High School Students:
This is the perfect time to be visiting the campuses of schools you may be going to next fall or to start exploring potential future schools. The spring is definitely the prettiest time for almost every school. Piece of advice, if you visit the University of Delaware, try to avoid coming on a Tuesday because it ALWAYS rains on Tuesdays. Any other day of the week you should be able to see the campus in all its glory with tree lined walkways, cobble stone paths, historic buildings, and great places to eat on Main Street.
Feel free to start doing some reading or homework out on the lawn or at a table outside. Enjoy the sun and use the nice weather as a form of stress relief as the end of the year becomes a little hectic.
And college seniors, take this time to truly enjoy and soak in your college campus. Lie out on the green, take a walk down Main Street, and convince your friends to do a celebratory bar crawl. Graduation is right around the corner, so take the time now to cherish these last moments of being a college student and make some unforgettable memories.
