You can – and will – get through exams

It’s almost time for that dreaded “F” word – final exams. Gross. Unfortunately it’s something that we all have to go through in our college careers. Here are some basic tips for surviving and, dare I say it, passing your final exams:

1) Take advantage of any study groups and/or study guides your teacher provides. Those usually include specifics of what is going to be on the final. Ignoring them would be downright silly.

Offenhauer equals bigger rooms, AC and great location

Coming to college freshman year was such a scary experience full of huge decisions. I have never been good at making decisions. I’m actually very, very bad at it.
