5 Reasons To Look Forward To Finals Week

It might seem like the most dreaded week of the semester, but there are a few perks.

5 Reasons To Look Forward To Finals Week

Finals week is universally known to be one of the toughest weeks for college students. We spend the majority of our time locked up in our rooms studying like crazy and don't have much time to hang out with our friends, watch TV, or even have the slightest bit of downtime for that matter. However, there are a few things that finals week brings that aren't THAT terrible. I mean okay, it's still a little bit terrible. But I'm trying to look at the bright side and see the light at the end of the tunnel!

1. Warmer weather

By the time finals roll around, it should finally be shorts weather! You might be studying all day, but at least you can do so without freezing.

2. You get a little bit of leeway

People usually give you a break on almost everything during finals week. You aren't expected to do any chores, run any errands, or quite frankly do anything. Your only job is to study as hard as you can, otherwise you're free from responsibility!

3. You don't have to look presentable

Finals week = sweatshirt and messy bun all the way. No one cares what you look like, because its a unanimous agreement among your class that no one is going to judge.

4. You form a bond with your classmates


After studying for hours together, you're bound to make a few new friends! Who knows, your Bio study buddy could be your new best friend for life.

5. The end is near


So maybe this week is really tough, but just think, you're one week away from an entire three months off! It's literally the light at the end of the tunnel, so just hang in there!

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.
