On the first day of finals, my GSC gave to me...
Finals period: there is no escape! Every school has one, but at Boston University SMG, we take it in stride.
In the midst of a blitz of final papers, presentations and exams, our sense of community comes out in full force.

In the spirit, I challenged a few of my classmates to answer this question about their finals experience: "If how you are feeling about finals right now was a type of candy, what type of candy would it be and why?"
"Sour Patch Kids - starts out sour but it ends up sweet!" -James
"I've got a different kind of finals period - all projects, no exams - so I'd be an Airhead: it's hard, but a different kind of hard!" -Emily
"I'd be Starbursts: I've got a little of all the colors flying around in my head!" - Raul
"Nerds: a combination of feeling studious, all over the place, but still contained!" - Kristen (me)
"A bag of York Peppermint Patties (in Christmas colors), because that's what's going to get me through finals!" - Rachel (left)
"A Tootsie Pop: because you just need to get through it to the center!" -Cate
