This Way . . . To Finish the Course!

As finals week creeps closer, students are beginning to make the necessary adjustments: We’re writing out study schedules and stocking up on easy-fix meals; we’re not going out as much, but we are going to the library more than usual. It’s all part of the routine, and thank goodness Finish the Course is part of it as well.
Finish the Course is Gordon College’s “friendly finals helper,” according to the Academic Support Center (ASC), who organizes the study-help program every year. They offer mentoring, workshops, time-management and study sessions to help students succeed, not just academically but also mentally during this stressful time. They’ve also organized a quiet study hall for students nightly through finals week, complete with writing tutors, treats and coffee.
Students should stay tuned for event updates and encouraging emails from ASC entreating us with 2 Timothy 4:7 to persevere: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
