They don't even let us bring our avocado toast inside!
Just because you have devote your free time to studying doesn't mean you can't look stylish while doing it. Right? Right.
You’ll take a lot of memories with you from the journey from duckling Freshman to swan Senior, but there will also be some regrets. Some of those regrets are going to haunt you for the rest of your life, or until you get a good paying job, which in this economy might mean the rest of your life. And of those regrets, potentially chief among them are not having sex in places you wish you would have.
Neverending class work, nonstop relationship (or lack thereof) shiz, grad school applications, a dwindling bank account...the day-to-day worries of our college years often weigh us down. But too often, we stress about the big issues and totally forget about the little things that make our daily routines bearable...or even great!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fall is in full swing. The pumpkin spice lattes are a part of your daily ritual. You’ve broken in your new fall boots. You’ve given up that whole turning over a new leaf idea - you know, the one that involved getting your homework done on time. And hey, just in time for midterms too.
One fateful day back in the pre-Facebook days, Christopher Columbus "discovered" America. Much like you discovered that wearing a scarf around campus on a 75 degree day would not stop the hickey rumors from floating around. And we're sure that's not the only discovery that you've made since attending college.
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.
My first year of college is ending and it's happening much. too. fast. in my opinion. It feels like I just got here, just took my first public bathroom shower, just attended my first lecture, my first frat party. But at the same time, with the amount I've learned, seen and done in the past 8 months, I feel like I've been here forever.
