Places On Campus That Are Surprisingly Quiet During Finals

Perfect places to study... or not.

As finals week begins I have been on the lookout for places to sit and read through countless powerpoint slides and pages of notes. While the list may not be the most exciting places to camp out during finals I hope that you, reader, find it helpful or at least amusing while I try to deal with my stress with humor. So here it goes.

Admissions Building

Early Decision I came out today and high school students are deep into all of their college decisions, making the final edits to their applications, trying to figure out their futures. But this far into December, no one is really taking college tours. No college tours equal no potential students in the admissions building. They have comfy couches and a nice fireplace. Pulling out all the stops for future students, trying to distract everyone from our beautiful blue construction fences that we have everywhere.

Laundry Room

Apparently, everyone is too busy to wash their clothes? I guess that sweatshirt will probably last until finals are over... maybe.

Any of the grad school libraries

My favorite thing about grad students is that they keep to themselves and don't talk much. No club libs for me, I need that peace and quiet.

The DUC during the afternoon

Everyone is again, distracted. Running around. Taking exams. Ordering Uber Eats. Making unhealthy diet choices, the usual.

Gym

Again, unhealthy decisions. What else can I say. Every time I passed the gym this week it was pretty quiet.

Next to the trashcan at your favorite coffeeshop

Have you seen how much coffee just gets tossed into the trashcans? Do I need to say anything more? We get it, you blew your budget and now you need the caffeine. No judgement here.

In your car

So you can drive home immediately after of course. If you find yourself with some spare time, I highly suggest going ahead and packing up and living out of your car for the last week of the semester. Everything you need is all right there.

Bed

There's nothing more comfortable than your own bed. Just bundle up and hunker down. Of course, you'll probably fall asleep within 10 minutes of "studying" but oh well.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
