What is your best study strategy/tip?
Making a realistic plan well in advance allowing myself breaks to go workout or be in the outdoors or to just relax. I often find myself having mixed study sessions with my friends and studying alone to be helpful as well. I also usually pick 2 quiet places to study during the term when I have to focus and keep switching between those 2 places during the term. This helps me study more efficiently. I also really like teaching myself or my friends what I have learned which helps me retain information better.
If you could travel back in time to your first year at UBC, what is one thing you would do differently?
I would join more clubs and go swim more at the Aquatic centre. I would also not be afraid to put myself out there and get out of my comfort zone.
