42 Thoughts College Students Have Before Finals

Any college student can tell you that April is the single worst time of the year. To the rest of the world, the phrase “April showers bring May flowers” says it all. It’s a time before the warmth of summer hits, and the time of irritating spring allergies. To those who haven’t yet experienced the college life, it is just a simply strange time of the year. But, to college students, it is a living nightmare. College students dread tearing the March page off of their calendars because they know that when April hits, finals are on their way. For college students, April is a time of procrastinating assignments, running aimlessly around campus trying to finish assignments, and figuring out financial aid for the next semester, all before finals in the first week of May. College students often have similar thoughts that float around their brains during this time of the year. Some thoughts are depressing and make you want to hide in your dorm with the lights off while others are just downright comical. Here are 42 of the most common things that you might hear from a college student around finals time.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
