Pre-Dead Week

Dead Week is a common topic for students this time of year, and with only a few days left until that fateful week dawns, the stress is setting in for a lot of people. Dead Week, which is the week before finals week, is usually mistaken by freshmen to be a week where nothing happens….

Bittersweet finals week

Finals week is a bittersweet experience. You love it because it’s the end of the semester,  you get to hopefully get off campus for a bit, and you are another step closer to that graduation day. On the other end, you hate it. You hate having to cram a semester’s worth of information into your…

This year, I was an extremely lucky duck, as I had no finals during finals week. (Well, I did have some take-home finals.) I was allowed to leave campus a week earlier than most. I definitely took advantage of my two weeks of break, traveling and resting as much as possible. My first week of…

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

With this past week being Dead Week, I definitely felt dead. I was completely exhausted by the time Friday came. I had multiple papers due, a presentation to give, classes to attend, and three exams to study for and take. On top of that you can’t forget finding time to eat, shower and sleep! Luckily…

Dead Week

If I survive this week, I might start thinking that I can run through a brick wall! The week before final exams is always a stressful one. This is the time in which projects, essays and major presentations are usually due. Everyone around campus is usually studying really hard and is sleep deprived, stressed and…
