Your Guide To Finals Studying (From Santa's Reindeer)

Your Guide To Finals Studying (From Santa's Reindeer)

Around finals time, everyone has an opinion on how to study best. We hear advice from our parents, professors, and upperclassmen. Since this time of year also marks the Christmas season, however, why have we not thought to ask some of Santa's helpers how to ace our exams? Reindeer might not take finals, but they pull the ultimate all-nighter -- flying around the world delivering toys -- with no caffeine (that we know of).


Dasher thinks you should go to the gym instead of studying. He also wants you to know he has the best quads of all the reindeer.


Dancer suggests you watch "The Nutcracker," go to a semiformal, or create an interpretive dance to learn orgo. She's also the one who convinced StudCo to add dance groups to LOTL.


Prancer knows you won’t have the confidence to prance into the career center without a good GPA, so he suggests you go to a library and actually study there. You have to prance there and back though.


Vixen wants you to look like a vixen, so she suggests you watch YouTube tutorials on eyeliner and then flirt with your TA to score an A. She also looks better than you always even though she's a reindeer.


Comet recommends you study for astronomy and forget everything else. He's also bffs with Professor Murphy and Santa is a little jealous.


Cupid feels that UVA Crushes is the best use of your study time. He suggests you go to whichever library your crush frequents and pretend to study while you fall in love. If that fails, he suggests you download Tinder and watch "Love, Actually."


(PSA: This picture is supposedly from a version of "Rudolph" featuring Donald Trump.)

Donner has embraced his name recently and encourages you to join Donald Trump’s campaign. He believes studying is most effective when done while combing The Donald's toupee.


Blitzen is a crammer, so he suggests you wait until the last minute and rush through all your studying right before the exam. In addition to being a realist, Blitzen likes 5-Hour Energy with his Christmas cookies.


Rudolph suggests you study at night so that his nose can be your flashlight. During the day, he wants you to watch "Bridesmaids" instead of Christmas movies since Maya Rudolph is actually his cousin.

Turns out Santa's reindeer give bad study tips. I suggest you take Prancer with you to Chem and leave the others to delivering presents.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
