Finished with Finals

First off I want to apologize for not blogging recently. But now I’m back and will be blogging as much as possible. I finished finals last week and have been enjoying my week off at home. The week leading up to spring break was definitely the most stressful week I have experienced at Bates. With 4 final exams to study for and 2 papers to write I basically camped out in Pgill (Pettengill Hall) with some friends only leaving to sleep, eat, or to take the occasional study break. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t buried in my books every second of the day but I was certainly working hard. I also probably consumed more caffeine during that week than I had in the whole previous semester.

Despite being in a caffeinated sleep-deprived state for much of the week, I noticed that Bates tried to make the studying process easier. There was a late night breakfast served at commons for hungry over-tired students and extended hours at the library. Commons also provided little paper lunch bags for everyone that contained individually wrapped snacks and your choice of soda. I don’t think bigger schools do that for their students so I greatly appreciated it.

Now that I am done with my first two semesters it is time to look forward to short term and I can’t wait to see what the experience is going to be like. I’ll keep you posted. Short term classes start in two days…
