A CollegeCandy PSA: How to Survive Finals

With finals season fast approaching (or maybe it's already here for you unlucky few), CollegeCandy would like to issue a public service announcement. Yes, classes are officially over. Yes, you will face a series of tests that test the knowledge you acquired in said classes. Yes, obviously, they're a big deal. But should you ignore the rules of civilized conduct and go balls-to-the-wall crazy in your efforts to secure the best grades possible? Ummm...please don't.

Web Spy: Cramster

It's May, which means summer vacation is almost here! Soon, you'll be free of classes and have plenty of time to relax, lie on the beach, party with friends, and work that summer job or internship -- you just have to get through finals first.

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.

Your Finals Week Survival Guide: The 7 Things You Need to Get Out Alive

As much as it pains me to say, finals season is coming. For some, you've still got a few weeks before all hell breaks loose. 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.

How to Get an A on Your Final Paper

It’s finals week. You’re living on coffee and chocolate. Your days are spent in the library. Your nights are spent in the library. You’re wracking your brain trying to remember historical facts no one knows about and chemical equations you will never use. You’re stressed and crazed and far from in the mood to write. But write you will have to do.

We've All Been There: 'Selling' Back Our Books

You finished your last exam early and, after waiting for someone else to turn theirs in (you don't want to be first!), ran down the steps of that lecture hall, slammed that baby on the desk and skipped your way to freedom

My Love/Hate Relationship With College

Like with most things in my life (namely, the boy I'm kinda, sorta talking to right now), I have a very complicated relationship with college. Over the past four years, we’ve had our ups and downs. There have been moments when my only thoughts were, I love college (when I was living one of these moments), and there were others when I’ve thought, I hate college with a fiery passion…

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.

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

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!

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.
