Manage Stress with Integrity

People make bad decisions when under stress. So, you can prevent cheating by managing your stress with these tips:

  • Get off the computer and hit the books.
  • Study in 20-50 minute increments. Give yourself a 5-10 minute break between each session.
  • Don’t stick to one study spot. Switch it up. 
  • Jog for at least 20 minutes to refresh the mind and help your brain stay active.
  • Find out how you learn best. It's a learning experience. 
  • Talk to your professors and TAs, they’re there to help you.
  • Give yourself time to study for an exam or finish an assignment. Time constraint leads to stress.
