What's sleep? Oh right it's that thing where I pass out for a few hours. Although, compared to the 'recommended' amount of time studying, I don't really study much.

Duh.

I'm farking from work...at a university library. We're open 24 hours all this week for finals. I'm working a 5pm-4am shift today. Been doing them all week. I usually get out when we close at 2am.

No, no.

The week BEFORE finals week is for all-nighters because all 4 of your big programming courses had major projects due on the same day.
Finals week is where you sleep to make up for the time you weren't sleeping and detox from the 8 grams of caffeine you had over the past 3 days. (And desperately try to shift your sleep schedule because your 3:00 PM class has an 8:00 AM final.)

/Thank god for late days.
//Started multiple projects after they were due that semester.

Never took an all-nighter during finals. I had more then a few very-late-nighters finishing up homework, though. Amazingly putting in all that effort up front helped me to not need it at the end.

Also (and more importantly) Adderall. You know, if you want to graduate.

The *first* time I went to college, 1998, I remember on more than one occasion hearing people banging in the study rooms. I was merely trying to sleep on the lounge chairs on the 3rd floor... and no, I didn't join in.

I'd be happy to give it to you if that meant we could get some cameras in here. I want them on the fire doors and a few wireless ones we can randomly move around to catch the bastards littering us with these damned things. And not just us, several other colleges and universities in the area.

English major here. Finals week was something like 'show up and write a bs essay on books you didnt read' then spend the rest of the day jumping in on our Super Mario Bros 3 marathons. We'd usually beat the game 2-3 times a day with a variety of people hopping in and out. Then we'd go get trashed, pass out and do it again the next day.

Ah, good times.

trying to read all the textbooks we ignored for the semester 

Hey losers, hows about just doing your freaking assignments as they are assigned??

Since I was forced to work for a couple of years after high school instead of going to the university I wanted to go to, I was blessed with a work ethic.

With this in mind, I found college very easy. Reading and learning was my job. I read and absorbed what I was instructed to read and applied it. It was so much easier than having to go to a dreadful job.

I wish I'd gone with my friend and done a short stint in the Army before college. I know I would've been a MUCH better student afterwards. Maybe not a smarter student, but a hell of a lot more disciplined and a hell of a lot less lazy.

Hell, got a new story...

Housekeeping just let me know someone downstairs has actually pitched a tent and they're sleeping in it.

As much fun as it would be to do it myself, I'm going to let the university police tell them that's not acceptable. Don't need to get yelled at by my bosses for anything else right now...

Hi there.

I depended on you midnight shift people throughout my entire college career.

Thank you for working such a hellish shift. Thank you for being awake enough to help bail my butt out when I didn't deserve it. Seriously, thank you.

Statistics, Visual Basic as a (very, very) first-time programmer, and Financial accounting plus a smattering of HTML/Excel formulas/Access/SQL queries/wtf is an ER Diagram - all of these classes say 'STFU'. I already have an AAS, in Criminal Justice, pus was in the Army Reserves for about 7 years,, but these classes are a different animal from that, especially since I have little ability to retain the Math learnin' even with repetition. I'll be happy to make it out with a solid C average.

If you're primarily a music/language/visual learner, this stuff SUCKS. I mean it's still more interesting than being someone's secretary, but it is not easy.

You're welcome. Glad to have a job I like that lets me work a shift more inline with my body clock. Thank you for studying at such hours, thus justifying my work schedule.

I've been to Illinois State University, and believe me, it is a big deal that some kids are actually studying for their finals.

Also, WRT that fake $100 bill above: I've seen similar things lots of times, but why are they replacing Ben Franklin with William Riker?

I don't know how this never even occurred to me but that's sound logic. My old roommate was in land forces before college and seemed a lot more focused and dedicated than anyone else there.

Even funnier that there's a fist on the poster. The university used to promote school pride with a "Spread the Red" campaign (the school colors are red and white).

That's great! I feel like every event/group/activity done internally (lol) at a college/university with some form of student management behind it tends to go for some double-entendre naming.
The creative ones are great but after the first two months it's almost more surprising to see something with a straight name.
