Overheard On Twitter: Finals Week At Penn State

Finals week is coming to a close in Happy Valley and you can almost hear a collective sigh of relief — or defeat —  emanating from the student body. Penn State students took to Twitter to share their takes and stories relating to finals week, often speaking on behalf of the student population at large.

Finals week can lead to a few lost minds, and whoever this person was seems to have snapped for all of the library to see:

We are all really just crawling towards the finish line, but this student is just taking it quite literally. Maybe the student is studying for an interpretive dance class.

The recent NFL Draft, which saw Chris Godwin go in the third round, even served as inspiration for a student who saw his draft stock rise rapidly in a different kind of draft:

Mel Kiper had Jaret really high on his big board, so this pick really isn’t surprising. Another student also drew inspiration from the football world, looking toward what inevitably follows these spring semester finals:

Spring finals week, for many of us, is just one step closer to football season. Remember that when you’re taking your fifth final in five days.

There’s no better way to relieve stress than to show everyone who’s willing to watch why you wear clothes every day. If your crush is watching, you could even win over his or her heart with a display of your private parts…or maybe scare him or her away forever.

A major storm hit State College Monday night, leaving a flash flood behind along with some downed trees and structural damage. It could have been God’s ire at Penn State students using a Sunday night to parade around “bare-ass naked,” or maybe it was just a coincidence. In any case, nothing stops the finals grind:

Perhaps there’s no better representation of the impending hell right before finals week than this screenshot of what the storm looked like right before it hit:

“Happy” finals week is interesting choice of words, especially when finding a place to study is strangely difficult during the most intense week of the semester. This student plans to take out her rage on Penn State administrators if her grades suffer:

Speaking of suffering, we can’t leave out the engineering majors here. No one knows the struggle more than engineering students, and don’t we all know it.

It looks like Chad the finance major isn’t getting any love here. And it just happens to reminds us of another tweet:

There;s no better feeling during the semester than finishing your finals and letting the stress and anxiety drain from your life. Enjoy your summer, Penn Staters.
