As we all are fearing, our finals are coming closer than we’ve anticipated. Have no fear though! Within a week they will all be over and the campus will be silent and still until the holidays are over and everyone comes back to campus. Until the end of next week however, students will be under an insane amount of pressure and stress to pass their finals. At this point, most people are looking forward to going home soon and being able to see their pets. Well use all those positive things as motivation! As the urge to give up studying approaches, remember that are pets are hoping you do well on your exams just as much as your parents are hoping their students pass. Also, don’t be afraid to step away from the books. Overstressing doesn’t help you remember any of the material you’re studying, so don’t forget to take a break and step away from the books until you think you’re ready to start studying again. Another good thing to keep in mind is that professors are always just an email away if there’s ever anything you don’t understand. They also have course tutors they recommend to students who are a great source to students who are struggling with certain topics. However, for now everyone should relax for a night, watch a movie, read a book, and rest before finals kick in and throws everyone into the pile of stress that is the final exams. Happy studying everyone!
