I’m going to use the chat since my mic is low.
Becky Paul
16:22
I jog
Lynn Noel
16:26
that's fine!
Becky Paul
18:08
I have that
Lynn Noel
18:27
YES! But are you actually USING it? :)
Becky Paul
19:30
kind of
Lynn Noel
19:40
haha that's always the hard part, isn't it?
Becky Paul
20:29
yup, I think I might switch to one on my phone as it would be easier to keep myself in check and easier to access
Lynn Noel
20:52
that's a good idea - half the battle is figuring out which method works best for you
Lynn Noel
21:18
Google calendar is really amazing - one of our other advisors created a video on how to use it effectively if you're interested...
Becky Paul
21:23
yeah, trial and error until one wins.
Becky Paul
22:53
Sometimes the worries are overwhelming and prevent studying even when you try extremely hard.
Eric Comins

Great point, Becky!

Since you can't always sit up front anymore - keep your video on! Harder sleep when you can get caught live on candid camera!!!
Lynn Noel

Think of note-taking shortcuts like the abbreviations you use when texting - LOL
Jobair Ahmed

my handwriting is very messy and it makes my notes unreadable the sec time
Lynn Noel
44:19
Typing notes sounds like the right way for you then! Perhaps re-writing them out later, slowly and neatly, is an option
Lynn Noel
45:35
There's a separate webinar on different note-taking strategies that was offered last week - it's recorded and available on the SEAS Student Success Series webpage - you might benefit from a watch! http://engineering.buffalo.edu/home/academics/undergrad/advisement/success-series.html

thank you
Jobair Ahmed
51:41
this seems like a great idea for me
Jobair Ahmed
51:59
i struggle to study for 30 min at a time
Lynn Noel
56:57
yes! break up studying time - if you know you've got a huge test coming up in a week, plan ahead. you can break down studying into smaller times throughout the week
Lynn Noel
57:09
the trick here goes back to time management!
Jobair Ahmed
59:06
what about watching asynchronous in 2 times speed?
Jobair Ahmed
59:20
lectures*
Lynn Noel
01:00:26
do you mean that you sped it up or the instructor talks really fast
Lynn Noel
01:01:00
I find a lot of value in rewatching so that I can add to my notes - but that strategy doesn't work for everyone
Becky Paul
01:02:29
I’m trying to get tutoring, but I am in a math class that does not have much help outside the class. I even tried signing up for tutoring, but it is “unavailable.” There are no small groups for it and I am trying, but I am still messing up. We had an exam today and I flunked. What do I do now?
Lynn Noel
01:02:49
time to make an advising appointment Becky!
Lynn Noel
01:03:15
