Saint Leo University’s scheduled Fall final exam week is from Tuesday, Dec. 5, until Friday, Dec. 9, which leaves ample time of over three weekdays for students to get prepared mentally and physically for a ‘stress-free finals week.’ Although this is the case, it still comes as no surprise that with finals week approaching, some students will eventually push their bodies to unhealthy limits in attempts to study for prolonged periods of time before taking exams; this can hinder their success rates. It seems that to carry out such behavior, more and more students have turned their willingness to resort…

By Kyshonna Bethel Thanksgiving break is a period many college students excitingly anticipate. Coming down to the homestretch of the fall term, most students are worn-out and many homesick. For these reasons, this week long pause in the semester before final exams is just the breather needed to finish off the term strong.
