The School Year Comes To An End


For some who’ve been looking forward to this since August, there’s nothing sad about the end of the spring semester. But for most, this is going to be a bittersweet moment.

Today was the last day of classes for the spring semester, marking the unofficial end of the school year. Of course, while you’re probably eagerly waiting to drop your textbooks and head home, the final examination period is underway.

Here’s the full final exam schedule, via

The next few days are going to be stressful, but remember, the last couple of months have prepared you to do well on the final exams.

When test-time rolls around, it’s time to get yourself into confidence mode. You’ve prepared as much as you could, and now it’s time to ace the test. The tip here is to do whatever works to convince yourself you are going to do really well. Again, I know this tip sounds a little crazy but you just have to try it for yourself. I think you’ll like the results.

Given the weight of the exams, getting anxious during test-time is inevitable. Still, though you know the importance of doing well, you’ve experienced the feeling before. If you prepare beforehand, then nothing should be a surprise on exam day.

For graduating seniors and those who have completed their online evaluations for their courses, final grades will be available on May 20th. For those who haven’t, grades will become available on May 23rd.

Summer break is almost here, but it’s important to buckle down and get the job done during the final exam period! Good luck to everybody!
