Today is a day to both relax and panic. Today is MSUM’s study day. There are no classes held today and professors will be in their offices all day to offer help. The next 7 days are filled with finals that you may or may not be prepared for.
Every year the students can be sorted into two groups: Newbies and Old-timers. The newbies walk into their class at the normal time. They look around at all the empty seats. They have a nervous breakdown. They forgot that finals are not held at the same time as class normally is. Sometimes they get lucky and haven’t missed any finals, sometimes their luck stinks.
The Old-timers check when their finals are here. They get to their classrooms 10 to 15 minutes early. They still have a nervous breakdown, but at least they’re in the right place at the right time.
For example, someone may have General Chemistry II this semester every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am. For some reason, their final is being held on Tuesday at 9.
The School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership hopes you all study hard and long today so that you may pass your classes and finals with flying colors! Good luck to all!
