Study Tip of the Month
Coffee shops may sound like a good place to read or study, but they can often be distracting by sounds, music and talking. If you're serious about studying, find a quiet place in the library. That will help you focus on the material and finish studying faster.
You can connect with SLU SPS students and alumni via our social networking pages on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and YouTube. Chat with other current students and alumni about your experiences once you add our friends to your network. You may just find a business connection, a wealth of advice or a new study buddy!
