Everyone keeps saying that the semester is winding down to a close, but this couldn't be more wrong. The semester might be ending soon but it is far form winding down, it is actually winding up. The libraries are full, printers are running out of ink from printing final papers and students are getting less and less sleep. I would definitely not consider this winding down.
We thought we'd look through the pages of old Badger Yearbooks to see what past Badgers have said about their finals experience. On the left is an article from the 1977 yearbook, page 85. The article talks about how books take priority over beer during finals and that students line up at the libraries to claim their "territory" for the day. The article gives a fun look into studying during finals.
Also in the 1977 yearbook, on page 86, I found this section titled, The Amateurs' Guide to International Etudiance. The section talks about students reverting to ancient methods of cramming for exams. The images are comical as is the text. Take a quick read and see what methods you may have tried.
We hope that these articles are a nice break from the study session you are most likely in right now. Let us know what else could make your studies a little more fun.
Both of these collections can be found in The State of Wisconsin Collection.
We hope everything goes well at the conference this week and maybe we will see some of you there!
