Prepping for the big days...

Yes, finals are right around the corner, and we can all feel the tension that's building up to those pesky exams. Most are worth significant portions of your final grade, so the anxiety definitely gets to some students.

But in all honesty, final exams aren't actually much worse than your midterms. Why? Because you have more time to prepare for them. After this upcoming Monday, you'll enter what are called "dead days," or days where there's virtually nothing going on in campus: no classes, no club event, no distractions. All you have at hand are the final exams to study for.

Now that doesn't mean one should put off all studying to those select days!! Many students actually have exams that are clustered (even on the same day). So ultimately, the key is to plan ahead and come up with a rough schedule of how you'll juggle your various courses. Which days are you going to study for o-chem? For nst 10? Start preparing for the exams now, if you haven't already, while keeping in mind that you may have large chunks of time during finals week for further studying.

And with that, I hope y'all have an excellent winter break, and we'll see you back in the spring!
