19 Times Scranton, PA's Finest Paper People Accurately Described Your Finals Weeks Feelings

I'm Pam at the beginning of finals week and Meredith by the end.

With the end of the semester slowly creeping upon us, stress levels are soaring while ambition levels are rapidly declining. It's a brutal time, to say the least, but it is also the moment we wait for all semester because just after finals is a glorious break, well deserved or not.

During this week of pulling all-nighters and constantly calculating your GPA, we tend to all have the same feelings during exams: They're not the best. Correction: they are death. So even though, with the stress and delirium, it may be hard to put all these feelings into words, luckily one of America's most treasured pastimes can perfectly describe them for us: "The Office."

1. Summer is endgame.

How am I supposed to focus on content analysis with summer being so close?

2. Emotional and spiritual death is actual endgame.

Unfortunately, this is true.

3. When someone makes a Quizlet for the entire final and shares it with the whole class.

God bless that beautiful soul.

4. Trying to convince yourself that you can pass all your exams.

Self-encouragement is very important to prevent yourself from drowning in stress.

5. When your professor reminds you that the final is cumulative.

6. When your study group knows the material a lot better than you do.

There is no shame in asking your classmates for help!

7. When you don't even know the answer to the first question.

^ ^ ^ Me to my last two brain cells.

8. When your "easy" class ends up having the most difficult final.

Don't you just love these little surprises? :,)

9. That feeling you get after acing your final.

A rare, but much appreciated feeling.

10. When you can't bear to see another scantron.


11. When the information you studied the most is barely on the final.

12. When the delirium starts to set in.

One reason why proper sleep is important.

13. When you turn in your exam and contemplate your future.

"What if I just drop out?"

14. When your professor won't round your 68 to a 95.

The audacity.

15. When your professor disenables the "Projected Final Grade" option on Moodle.

16. When you hit absolute denial.

^ ^ ^ Me to all my professors.

17. When you realize there are only five minutes left to finish the exam.

18. When you realize you need to get a 103 on the final to get an A in the class.

19. When you turn in your last final.

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?
