10 Signs it's Finals Week

For the most part, every campus shows the same signs that students have entered into this week-long stretch of hell. From the clothing, to the frantic pacing back and forth, to the agitated sighs reverberating through the library, it's pretty apparent when we're in the midst of it. Now it's just counting down the minutes until the student next to you in the 'brary has a mental breakdown so they'll leave and you can use their chair as a foot rest.

How to Be Stress Free and Successful in College

According to the Daily Beast, Columbia University, my school, offers the most stressful undergraduate experience in the country. Admittedly, taking a tour of any campus library during midterms or finals is enough to set your nerves on edge. Under-eye bags are as common on campus as Longchamp bags. Many students (especially first-years) constantly complain about their work overload.

For others, there are only 7 days between you and those dreaded cram-everything-you've-learned-in-the-past-three-months-into-a-100-questions tests. Needless to say, it's a stressful time of year that always sneaks up on us, no matter how many syllabi we have or how much we tell ourselves that we're going to start studying three weeks in advance.

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.

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.

Survive Your Finals Hell Weeks

Weekly Wrap Up: Finals Week is Worse Than a Stage 5 Clinger

As of right now, I have been in the library for a duration of eleven hours. Working on one paper. I left for an hour to steal a free hot dog from a baseball game on campus. This is my life. And it's probably yours if you are stuck in the tornado of finals week, sucking the fun out of our lives.

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.

Overheard: Finals Edition

(Two girls, studying in the library.) Girl 1: Yeah, I'll probably start sleeping here too. Under the tables or something. Girl 2: No, I said "sleeping with girls" in the library. That's different. Girl 1: Oh. Yeah, I guess it is.
