The dreaded time is almost here, finals week. Among the numerous tests and projects that we slave over during the week of finals, to the end of the semester, we have to think about packing up and saying goodbye to campus for our fabulous summer break. On top of that, we try to balance having jobs and saying 'see you later' to our college companions. So going into these last couple weeks of the semester, let's stay on top of our college game, so that we can enjoy these last few weeks!
1. Look ahead
Knowing what day your tests and projects are due is critical. You might be able to get started on a project now and not have to worry about it in the upcoming weeks. Getting things done ahead of time is a lot better then staying up all hours of the night during finals week to finish them. You might even have a little extra time to have some fun! Look ahead at what is due and you may find that you DO have a final in that class is worth it!

2. Packing up
Start packing up the things that you aren't using, like your winter clothes or shoes you won't be wearing. This will help with the stress at the end of the year, when it's the last thing you want to do! Planning ahead with what you're going to wear will help too. Keep your favorite sweatpants and sweatshirts out, but pack away the warmer ones you won't be needing. Go through your cleaning supplies and toiletries, and see if there's anything you can start throwing away.

3. Get organized
Start your gameplay now! Get out your calendar and start marking every single thing you will be doing for the next couple of weeks, because your life is about to get a lot busier. Make sure to make time for lunch dates with friends, and study time in the library as well. Put your work schedule and finals times in there also, just so you don't forget about the important stuff! Start printing out rubrics for your projects and buying supplies early.

4. Time for friends
Get your last girls nights in, because the clock is ticking! Plan a night a week to either study together, or go grab dinner at the dining center (saving money)! During finals week, you will all be so swamped and everyone will be on different schedules, so make these plans before time gets away from you all!
