As the library tables fill up faster, coffee lines get longer and students start staying on campus later, it can only mean one thing — finals are quickly approaching.
Finals this semester are scheduled to be held during the first nine days of May. During this time, students often come together throughout campus to cram. While some students may have a lighter load, others face the challenge of studying for multiple exams at once.
Every student has a tried-and-true method of preparing for finals. For the students we communicated with, the general consensus of finals was one word: stress.
