Your answers will be kept confidential. Thank you for your time and good luck with your future pursuits. John

Black History Month Events

UW-Madison is celebrating Black History Month, starting on Jan. 31 with events throughout February and into early March, centered around the theme, “In Living Color: an Exploration of Blackness and Intersectionality.” The kickoff event is a performance of WE THE 350: Stories of Poverty, Racism and Incarceration in Wisconsin on Sunday, Jan. 31 at 7:00 p.m. at the Play Circle in Memorial Union. WE THE 350 explores the ways that state structures rely on intersections between race and class, along with many other intersections, to maintain racially disparate arrest and incarceration rates in Wisconsin. The keynote event of the series will be a lecture by Rahiel Tesfamariam on Thursday, Feb. 18 titled, “Black Millennials and the Black Church in the New Civil Rights Movement.” About the lecture: Civilians are mobilizing worldwide to protest injustices of all kinds and Black millennials are at the forefront of this movement using 21st century resistance strategies. This has led to a shift in visibility & power from the Black Church, the old guard of the Civil Rights Movement. But if this is to be an intergenerational ...

Dealing with Finals Stress

You are undoubtedly wrapping up your course assignments and projects and preparing (or thinking about preparing) for final exams.  We all know that the best way to prepare for exams is to study hard throughout the semester. Research has shown clearly that cramming is not an effective way to learn, and much of what you do manage to learn you forget soon after the exam.  At this point in the semester you may be forced to cram, but you might consider making a promise to yourself to study more evenly over the spring semester. But no matter how hard you’ve studied over the semester, final exams usually bring extra stress.  This is normal, and you know that your stress level will drop dramatically after your last exam. Over the years, students have helped us learn about exam-time stress and methods to combat it.  One good stress reducer is to get good exercise. Others ways to reduce stress are eating sensibly and getting good sleep. Cramming, especially the “all-nighter,” can exacerbate feelings of stress and actually lower performance on exams. Often, just talking with ...
