    Birthday Faves: The 8 People You’ll Meet in the Library During Finals

    Although Finals Week may be a brutal task, at least it is reassuring to know everybody has to fight through it. And when I say everybody, I mean everybody. The library has become a home away from home for many college students, most of whom I could definitely do without.

    In case your campus missed out on likealittle.com's viral explosion during your finals, you should probably check it out once everyone gets back to school and the hormones start raging. The amusing service allows anybody to flirt anonymously from across the room.

  • Greek Speak: Missing Greek Life

    Greek Speak: Missing Greek Life

    Ahhh, finals are over… we can all take a sigh of relief, right? Wrong. For the last two years, going home over holiday breaks has been brutally bittersweet. My parentals are still in the middle of building a house that, in the mean time, leaves me roomless, bedless, and no-space-to-myselfless.

  • We’ve All Been There: Waiting For Your Grades

    We’ve All Been There: Waiting For Your Grades

    You know the grades are curved, but you also know that leaving the last essay blank is not going to bode well on your overall score. You talked to your friends in the class and compared answers. You’ve flipped through your notes again and again. You’ve attempted to calculate your score in your head.

  • Weekly Wrap-Up: Winter Break, Baby!

    Weekly Wrap-Up: Winter Break, Baby!

    Finally, finals are over! But after too much studying and not enough fun de-stress sessions (breakfast, yoga, sex, the usual), it feels like there’s still too much tension in the air.

  • The Starting Line: A College Education

    The Starting Line: A College Education

    Candy canes, hot chocolate and crowded libraries, they’re all synonymous with one thing--finals season is in the air (or for some at least, it’s already done with and they’re busy tanning their backsides in Barbados). Between writing papers (ew) and eating so much junk food that Cheetos dust is running through my bloodstream, I’ve had some time to reflect over semester one of my college experience.

    12 Ways Universities Can Help Students De-Stress During Finals

    Not only have you not started your holiday shopping, but you haven't started that 20-page paper that's due in 12 hours. Welcome to finals week! It's the most stressful time of the year, where you get to play catch up on all the reading assignments you skipped for the past 4 months while you simultaneously study for 5 exams that happen within two days.

  • We’ve All Been There: Final Exams

    We’ve All Been There: Final Exams

    You set your alarm for 8am, then check it 3 times to make sure it's right. Just to be safe, you set your phone alarm too. Everyone knows the urban legend about the time the power went out and that poor student slept through the exam that was worth 50% of her grade. That's not going to be you.

  • The Weekly Ten: Our Winter Break Plans

    The Weekly Ten: Our Winter Break Plans

    Let’s be honest. There were times when you weren’t sure you’d make it. You were optimistic back in August, but less so as the months wore on. You started your countdown on Halloween, and were ready to tear your own hair out over Thanksgiving break. By the time finals week had rolled around you had already checked out. But somehow, somehow you’ve managed to make it through.

  • Weekly Wrap Up: I Hate This Week

    Weekly Wrap Up: I Hate This Week

    This week was pretty eh. I mean, between finals, grad school applications, and the 25 feet of snow outside, we’ve all had a rough few days. Luckily we've been writing feverishly (what else are we supposed to do when we’re cooped up inside?) so you have plenty to read while you’re procrastinating that 10-page research paper.

  • Everyone Needs Daily Affirmations

    Everyone Needs Daily Affirmations

    It's that time of year when it seems like everything is gray and bleak....and that's why we thought it was a great day for a comeback tour for this awesome video. Jessica, one of our favorite preschoolers, reminds us just how awesome our lives can be. Because when times get rough, and writing a 12-page paper in 3 hours is rough, we all need our daily affirmations.

    Friday Faves: The 8 People You Will Meet In The Library During Finals [GALLERY]

    Finals Week has officially crept into our lives like the Grinch who stole Thirsty Thursdays. I know I’ve spent the past three days straight camping out in the library, creating classical music radio stations on my Pandora and eating Wheat Thins and coffee for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Boof. Finals Time. AKA the darkest of dark times for college students who are holed up in libraries with nothing but a Jimmy John's sandwich and a prayer.

  • How to Survive Finals Week 101

    How to Survive Finals Week 101

    The last few weeks of the semester can get a little stressful. And not because you just can’t seem to find the perfect present for everyone on your list (or in my case because you keep getting distracted by Macy’s shoe department and never get around to buying those other presents), but because of finals. Remember those? Probably not.

    10 Ways To Procrastinate Studying For Your Finals

    We all need a break from the finals madness sometimes, and the ladies at College Candy know this better than anyone else. So we've compiled a list of our favorite ways to procrastinate...just don't blame us if you have to pull an all-nighter right before that calc final.

  • The Weekly Ten: This Semester Needs to End

    The Weekly Ten: This Semester Needs to End

    I love the first week back after Thanksgiving break. No scratch that, I hate it, actually. But what I do like is what that week represents. It’s the beginning of the end.

  • Survive Your Finals Hell Weeks

    Survive Your Finals Hell Weeks

    The week after Thanksgiving break can always be pretty overwhelming. If you haven't started preparing for your final projects, papers, or exams yet, you might be feeling if you're drowning. And sometimes, even if you have gotten a good head start on your assignments, the fast approaching deadlines can be terrifying.

  • We’ve All Been There: After-Thanksgiving Stress

    We’ve All Been There: After-Thanksgiving Stress

    In order to maximize your Thanksgiving break, you took the last flight back to campus. You lugged your oh-my-god-why-is-this-so-heavy luggage - now overflowing with clean laundry, Black Friday goodies and Gladwear filled with leftovers - from the airport to your house/apartment/dorm room.

  • Surviving Senior Year: The Balancing Act

    Surviving Senior Year: The Balancing Act

    I’ve sat down to write the first entry of the column that will chronicle my final year as a college student about fifty a few times now, but I just haven’t been able to figure out where to start. So I figure I might as well start with the truth: I can’t seem to write this column because I’m not really sure how I feel about this whole “senior year” thing.

  • It’s Time to Start Thinking About School (!!)

    It’s Time to Start Thinking About School (!!)

    It's that time of year again. Yep, the time when suddenly it's the end of August and you are stuck on your bed staring at all of shiz you need to pack into boxes for another successful (and sometimes difficult) year in college. You get slightly excited for another year to pummel you in the face with good times and countless hours in the lib. Can you feel it?

  • Are Final Exams so 2000?

    Are Final Exams so 2000?

    magine your time in college without finals exams. Can't do it? Sound like music to your ears? Well, it may become reality for some extremely lucky students. Harvard is making its professors decide within the first week of class whether or not there will be a final exam at the end of semester.

  • Body Blog: Stress Does the Body Bad

    Body Blog: Stress Does the Body Bad

    Stress has been my companion for as long as I can remember. I’m the kind of girl who likes having a million things to do because I love feeling productive. Unfortunately, I tend to take on more than I can handle. This leads to late nights, early mornings, constant worrying, tiredness, and, well…you know the routine.

    Would You Rather be able to go back in time and fix a mistake you made and possibly change the course of your life OR get a glimpse of your future but not be able to change anything about it?

    8 Things You Should Never Say to a College Senior

    As I sit elbow-deep in final papers, projects and exams that are all due within the next week, saying I'm counting down the seconds until the end of the semester is the understatement of the year. No. Of the century. But if I relayed that fact to my senior friends that are actually graduating in a couple of weeks, they'd smack me.

    The 8 People You’ll Meet In the Library During Finals

    Finals Week has officially crept into our lives like the Grinch who stole Thirsty Thursdays. I know I've spent the past three days straight camping out in the library, creating classical music radio stations on my Pandora and eating Wheat Thins and coffee for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I can't even remember the last time I've showered at this point, but a recent armpit sniff test proves it's been too long.
