The Week Before: Observations

Here is what happens the week before exams, from what I notice.

The Library - becomes packed. People are constantly studying, and the campus gets quieter. There are fewer people shouting and not many loud conversations. Everyone is starting to study.

Casey’s Corner - is often frequented. Everyone gets multiple cups of coffee to stay awake, finishing late work, final papers, and senior seminars.

Clothing - on people changes. Everyone dresses nicely. Senior seminars are doing presentations, there are final presentations, poster presentations, and just people who dress nicely hoping to make a final good impression.

Dorms- become quiet. There are quiet hours enforced so that people can get work done, and parties for the most part stop.

The Writing Center - is full all the time. People make last minute appointments for editing papers and getting help.

Books - are everywhere. They are in everyone’s hands, and laps, and bags. Everyone is studying, or reading, or writing, and everyone has books.

While we do not have a reading period here at McDaniel, we still have classes, the week before exams is still, in my opinion, just as studious as a reading period would be (if not more so, since there is not as much time for studying).
