As a seminary student, finishing up the semester well is not only about getting good grades, but also about preparing yourself for the future ministry. This is my last year as a student here at Calvin and i thought it might be helpful to share what I’ve gleaned as a way of staying on top of life and ministry and school at the close of the semester. Here are some tips to help you finish the semester well. My personal suggestion is to pay special attention to numbers 6 and 7.

  1. Review your course syllabus At the beginning of the semester, your professors handed out the course syllabus that outlines the requirements, assignments, and deadlines for the course. Now that the semester is coming to an end, it’s a good time to review the syllabus and make sure you’ve completed all the requirements. This will help you avoid any last-minute panic as the semester ends.
  2. Create a study schedule If you haven’t already done so, create a study schedule for the remaining days of the semester. This will help you manage your time effectively and ensure that you’re able to complete all your assignments on time. Be sure to include breaks in your study schedule to avoid burnout.
  3. Attend all your classes As the semester winds down, it can be tempting to skip classes or leave early. However, attending all your classes is important to ensure that you don’t miss any important information or announcements. Also, your professors may provide hints or tips about upcoming exams or assignments that you don’t want to miss.
  4. Reach out to your professors If you’re struggling with a particular class or assignment, don’t hesitate to reach out to your professors for help. They’re there to support you, and they want you to succeed. You can ask questions during class, make an appointment to meet with them during office hours, or send them an email.
  5. Collaborate with classmates Working with classmates can be an effective way to prepare for exams, discuss class material, and share notes. It’s also a great way to build relationships with your peers, which can be helpful in the future ministry.
  6. Take care of yourself As a seminary student, you’re likely juggling many responsibilities, including family, work, and ministry. It’s important to take care of yourself during this busy time. Be sure to get enough sleep, eat healthily, exercise regularly, and take breaks when you need them. Also, don’t forget to spend time with loved ones and engage in activities that bring you joy.
  7. Pray Finally, as a seminary student, you know the importance of prayer. Take time to pray for guidance and strength as you finish up the semester. Ask God to help you retain the information you’ve learned, perform well on your exams, and prepare you for your future ministry.

In conclusion, finishing up the semester well as a seminary student requires discipline, focus, and commitment. By reviewing these 7 things you’ll be well on your way to a successful semester both from a spiritual and personal standpoint as well as from the traditional GPA standpoint. Remember, your goal is not just to get good grades, but to prepare yourself for the future ministry that God is calling you to.
