12 Tips To Stay Warm During Finals Week

12 Tips To Stay Warm During Finals Week

As finals week approaches, so does the winter weather.

As finals week approaches so is the winter weather. It’s been under 40 degrees all week and everyone is packing into the buses to avoid the cold.

I thought giving some helpful tips on how to keep warm this week would be beneficial to those who think staying in bed and hibernating is the best use of your time (psh totally not me).

1. Blankets

They are warm and fuzzy and give you that sense of comfort.

2. Snuggling with that special someone while they quiz you

Being with a loved one during this stressful season can be very relaxing. What’s better than that? Doesn’t that sound fun?!

3. Turning on your heat

If you sweat enough, then you won’t be able to tell that you are crying.

4. Jump in a hot tub with your note cards

Don’t let the note cards get wet, though! Otherwise, you can’t read the notes on them.. for better or for worse.

5. Fetal position in a library

All cuddled up in a ball with your least favorite books. Match made in heaven!

6. Pacing as exercise

It’s leg and brain day, every day this week. Blood flow and warmth at the same time.

7. Fort out of binders

Insulation is key.

8. Hot chocolate with little marshmallows

Little bits of warmth and joy to make you feel readier for the holidays

9. Hot chocolate with BIG marshmallows


10. Coffee with your friends to cry about this week

You will need the emotional support and caffeine.

11. Overheat your computer by taking out the fan

And watch as all of your study materials on your hard drive cease to exist.

12. Burning all your textbooks to create a nice, warm fire

You know you want to.

Good luck on your finals and stay warm!!

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?
