After about 4 years, 48 finals and approximately a quadrillion cups of coffee, I will be graduating. That feels weird to say.

Do you hear it? The tick-tick-tick of frantic fingers flying over coffee-stained keyboards. The hoarse croak of voices wondering if Jafang will deliver pizza at 2 a.m. (they will). The evening hush as students retreat to the Rivera and Orbach libraries, broken only by the scrape of scavenged chairs pulled along the tile to build pseudo-beds. Finals are coming, guys and gals, and it’s time for our quarterly installment of tips to make your week run as smoothly as possible.
