Finals Week At Southeastern, According to Ron Swanson

Take a break from your last-minute cramming to enjoy our favorite Parks and Recreation character's reactions to finals week.

Finals Week At Southeastern, According to Ron Swanson

The most dreaded part of the semester is upon us: finals week. We are all scrambling to turn in last-minute literary analyses, manage group projects, and our-class-needs-more-points homework assignments. As we enter dead week, we begin to study for our final exams, pulling all-nighters in the library and crunching numbers ("If I want a B in the class, I only need to make a 7 percent on the final!"). Attitudes about final exams vary from student to student. Some suffer from anxiety attacks while others accept their failing grades with a shrug. If anything, I fall into the former group. I am a perfectionist, so anything less than a 4.0 for the semester is unacceptable.

Thankfully, though, summer vacation is right around the corner.

Even as we work our butts off to understand the terms on our flashcards and the race issues in Shakespeare's "Othello," take a break to enjoy Ron Swanson's reactions to final exams.

9. When the university health center reminds you to eat breakfast

10. When you have to tutor your slacker roommate

11. When you finally feel prepared for your finals

12. When you see the first question on the exam

13. When you, at last, finish your last exam

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.
