11 Places That You Can Hide On UNC's Campus When Finals Season Really Starts Sneaking Up On You

Is hiding in the bushes too much of a cliché?

11 Places That You Can Hide On UNC's Campus When Finals Season Really Starts Sneaking Up On You
Alexis Byrd

Is it just now hitting you that LDOC is upon us? Are you only just now realizing that LDOC means the impending doom of finals season? Don't worry, Tar Heels, there is a way out.

I have taken it upon myself to scope out campus and find the absolute best, most indiscernible locations on campus. It's like a big game of hide-and-seek — except finals season will never, ever find you!

1. By the Old Well.

Alexis Byrd

I mean, the Old Well owes you since you went there on FDOC and still don't have a 4.0.

2. Behind a column somewhere.

Alexis Byrd

On this campus, there are plenty to choose from. Go crazy!

3. Behind one of those really thin trees between Memorial and Phillips.

Alexis Byrd

Believe me, you'll be totally invisible. Completely camouflaged.

4. In the stacks.

Alexis Byrd

Davis 8th floor. Trust me, finals would never dare interrupt such an intense study location.

5. That one fountain.

Alexis Byrd

You know the one. Your finals will presumably be administered via paper or laptop, and you know what both of those are afraid of? Water.

6. Behind the ~spider~.

Alexis Byrd

Finals season probably has arachnophobia. I mean, don't we all? Thanks for bringing such a fearsome protector to campus, Carol.

7. Those benches near Steele.

Alexis Byrd

You don't even have to crouch or hide here. It is a peaceful, safe place. Finals wouldn't dare.

8. Some staircase in Wilson.

Alexis Byrd

You know, just any of them. I'm intimidated by Wilson, so maybe finals will be, too.

9. Behind those eye seats or whatever.

Alexis Byrd

That way finals can't see you, haha. Ha.

10. Behind a recycling bin.

Alexis Byrd

Avoid academic responsibilities and promote recycling at the same time. Win-win.

11. In your lofted bed.

Alexis Byrd

There's no better way to escape all your other obligations than to curl up and sleep. It's what you'd do any other day, right? Plus, finals can't get you as long as your feet are under the blanket. That's how it works.

But really, though—good luck, fellow kids. Don't forget to bring an extra scantron or blue book, and for the love of all things UNC, bring your OneCard (just in case).

Just think—it's finals season now, but soon it'll be *whispers in "High School Musical"* summer, summer, summer.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
