Your students are likely starting their ‘countdown mode’: 9 days of classes…..10 days until Exam Week begins….23 days until grades are posted….
…and 11 Days Until Cougar Countdown!
Cougar Countdown http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/index.php , a collaborative effort of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Auxiliary Services, and community partners, offers a schedule of FREE events and activities on campus during Exam Week featuring:
- Yoga and Zumba classes
- Late Night and Early Morning Snack Breaks
- Puppy (and adult dog!) Petting on Rivers Green
- Ice Cream Sundae Party
- Early Morning Coffee Breaks
- Late Night Pizza on Rivers Green
- And more!
Cougar Countdown is provided to all students to encourage them to participate in healthy activities that will help them reenergize and regroup for more effective study time. A new offering this semester is expanded peer tutoring hours, provided by the Center for Student Learning, which will give 6 additional hours of tutoring assistance in the following subject areas: Spanish, Math, Accounting, Biology, Geology, and Chemistry. Details can be found at http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/study-locations/index.php .
From the Cougar Countdown planning team and our many supporters and partners on campus, please encourage your students to study smart this Exam Week by participating in one or more of our many activities and events! Don’t buy into the hype—tell them to skip the cramming and ban the all-nighters—and instead follow a balanced schedule of study-rest-recreate for a better Exam Week!
