What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

It’s hard to believe that we’ve finally entered spring -- which means that final exams are about one and a half months away. This may seem like a decently long time, but the reality is finals will approach in seconds. Then before you know it -- another academic year is finished, a new set of graduates enters the next chapter of their lives, and the remaining students move one step closer to graduation. Make sure you check out our spring finals exam week care packages to help lighten the load!

Spring final exams are often more difficult than winter for a number of reasons. The nice weather makes it significantly more difficult to concentrate on studying -- the willpower students have to not ditch their work and embrace the coming summer is extremely tough to achieve. The promise of summer also makes it hard not to drop everything and make plans for the coming months. 

But overall, spring finals are painstaking because students are ready for a break after a long academic year and the only thing standing in the way of their summer freedom is the remaining few exams, papers, and presentations. 

So without further delay, let’s discuss:

  • Our top spring final exam tips
  • Ready-made care packages you can send to someone (or get for yourself!)
  • Ideas for creating your own spring final exam care packages

Our Top Spring Final Exam Tips

No matter what you’re studying, when you follow these tips you’ll be acing your exams in no time. Remember, you’ve got this!

Being so close to the end of the academic year, many students find that they might need a little extra motivation to make it through the end of the semester. It might seem hard to imagine, but during finals week, breaking your focus to go to the dining hall for a meal or sometimes even showering, isn’t an option for some students. Finals week does require almost all of the focus and attention students have to offer, and they will study for multiple hours straight at any given time. 

But when you follow a little friendly advice, you won’t ever have to worry about being one of those students cramming the night before. In order to get the most out of your study time, it all comes down to:

  • Being prepared. Make sure you know exactly what the final exam is going to entail. Typically teachers will have all this laid out in the syllabus, or will have discussed it during lecture. If you’re still concerned or want to be absolutely certain you know what to study, consider dropping by their office hours! Professors are more than happy to speak with you concerning what you should be expected to know, or help you in a specific area you’ve been having trouble with.

Pro tip: Word of caution though, be sure you’re not visiting their office just to get filled in because you missed the class. Their time is valuable, and if they’ve already explained this in the class, they’re definitely going to ask if you were in attendance! Remember, if you miss class, it’s your responsibility to learn what was covered from a classmate or from the syllabus.

  • Being organized. In order to ensure you allow adequate time for studying, relaxing, and making it on time to your actual exams, it’s crucial to be organized. This means organizing your materials, the time you’re allotting to each exam, and the best ways for you to study all the material required. 

Whether it’s using color coded notebooks and file folders for each class, or adjusting your meal schedule based on your final exam days and times, you’ll only help yourself out by creating schedules and lists to stay on top of it all.

  • Embracing change. We could all use a change in scenery once in a while, and the same applies to your study time. When classes are over and it’s time to hunker down and study, almost any building is fair game when it comes to setting up shop -- you’re not limited to only the library!

If your dorm has work stations in the hall lobby or basement, consider checking those out while reviewing your notes. Or, see what buildings might have classrooms open and available for students to use to study. And don’t forget about your student union center or common areas in other buildings. 

In addition to changing your actual location to study, it is also helpful to change up your study tactics to make sure you’re really absorbing and digesting the knowledge you need. Whether it’s making flash cards, writing practice answers, or asking a friend to quiz you, change it up and see how well you know your subjects.

  • Knowing when to take breaks. Almost as important as actually studying is learning when to take breaks. You cannot and should not be studying at all hours, so organize time slots throughout the days (and nights) that are reserved for breaks. You need time away from studying to give your brain a break and to do something else. Consider watching a show, hanging with a friend for a bit, reading a book, or even taking a cat nap.

Stepping away from the text books and notes is a good way to refresh and recharge your brain so you’re ready to keep studying.

Another great way to ensure efficient and effective studying, is to ensure you’re hydrated and not running on an empty stomach. This is why it’s necessary to have snacks and other food items on hand in your dorm rooms and in your backpacks. 

Student’s start to survive on these snacks, sometimes only having time for one major meal each day. Brain food is the sustenance of life! Student’s are more than thrilled when they receive a care package during these trying times. It boosts their mood, provides extra motivation, and of course enjoying all the snacks is a bonus!

For this finals season, we have created a list of everything you need to include in their spring final exam care package and the ways to make this possible!

Self care during finals week is crucial. Like we said earlier, college students are known for cutting out everyday tasks around the time of finals -- things like showering and getting adequate meals. One important bit of information for students in the midst of finals is that taking breaks are necessary and even encouraged. Burnout is a real thing, so don’t become a victim of your own hard work.

Consider checking out our whole assortment of available care packages to send to your student for spring final exam week!

Create Your Own Care Package

Consider the option to create your own care package

Create a care package specifically for them to love and enjoy filled with their most favorite snacks and treats. 

If the ready made care packages don’t suit your fancy, or you would rather individually select the items in your student’s package -- you’re in luck! There is an option to customize and create your own care package. This three step process is incredibly simple and will only take a matter of minutes. 

You will start out with a $30 basic care package box to fill, but should you want to upgrade to include more items, you can always do so. Once your box is full, a pop up will notify you! 

This is a great way to ensure your student has exactly the kinds of snacks and beverages they love. Remember, if they have an unmatched love for fruit snacks, you can add as many to the box as you want! 

Once the box is full, the second step is filling out the personalized note card. All you have to do is select the occasion for sending the box, select the greeting card image, and type your message! If you’re wondering, finals is an option for the card occasion and there are a variety of sweet and funny images pertaining to finals. 

After the greeting card is looking adorable and filled out with sweet words of encouragement, all that’s left is to send the package. This process follows standard online checkout procedures for all retailers. Keep in mind that you’ll need their school address because the care package will be delivered right to campus. Then after a few days, once the care package arrives they will be grinning from ear to ear and appreciate the effort that went into creating it! 

Finals week is an extremely intense and stressful time. Anything you can do to make this more bearable for them will be greatly appreciated -- and when they are wishing for an extra snack in the middle of studying, the care package will be there to help them out! Keep reminding them to stay positive, remain concentrated, and do everything they can to make time management a priority. Once finals are over, they will finally be able to relax and begin the summer fun!
