Hey​ ​there!​ ​My​ ​name​ ​is​ ​Natalya​ ​Hoover,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​have​ ​just​ ​started​ ​my​ ​freshman​ ​year.​ ​I​ ​came​ ​to the​ ​Mount​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​a​ ​career​ ​​in​ ​Psychology​ ​in​ ​hopes​ ​that​ ​after​ ​graduation,​ ​I​ ​can​ ​continue to​ ​help​ ​individuals​ ​for​ ​a​ ​living. ​​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​

Mount Saint Mary College ​has​ ​several​ ​academic​ ​tools​ ​open​ ​to​ ​us​ ​to​ ​help​ ​with​ ​test preparation. ​​In​ ​the​ ​Dominican​ ​Center,​ ​for example, you can gather some friends and ​reserve​ ​a​ ​study​ ​room. Surrounding​ ​yourself​ ​with​ ​the​ ​ones​ ​you​ ​love​ ​the​ ​most​ ​could​ ​help​ ​reduce​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​of​ ​that​ ​test​ ​anxiety feeling.​ ​While​ ​you’re​ ​all​ ​working​ ​hard​ ​studying though,​ ​don’t​ ​forget to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​few​ ​breaks!​ ​Take​ ​a walk​ ​around​ ​campus​ ​and​ ​enjoy​ ​the​ ​fresh​ ​air.​ ​ Continue Reading
