As the spring semester comes to an end, students are preparing for finals week. Student organizations are offering opportunities to stay stress free during finals week.

Housing Resident Assistants are enforcing quiet hours for the dorms on campus. Starting at 5 p.m., Friday, April 27, quiet hours will be 24 hours a day until May 4, the last day of classes. Students are supposed to keep noise to a minimum during these hours so others can study for their exams. If students do not abide by these rules, RAs will write them a citation. On the east side of Leoser, the RAs are organizing a program called Big Summer Blowout at 6 p.m., Wednesday, May 6. This event is an opportunity for students to take a break from their exams. The event will include outside games such as volleyball, cornhole and giant jenga. Hot dogs and s’mores will also be served at the event.

 “In my opinion, finals week is not as stressful as most make it out to be,” said Maddison Harrison, Glenpool junior. “My freshman year, finals caused a lot of anxiety, but as I have become older, I have learned to keep up with my grades to ensure my final grade. Finals are meant to test your knowledge at the end of your course, not cause you to re-think your decisions to attend college. My advice to freshmen would be to keep up with your grades throughout the semester so you won’t be stressed about finals.”

The John Vaughan Library is giving students the opportunity to study for their finals.

During finals week, the library is open 24 hours every day of the week for students to have unlimited time for their work. Students can check out study rooms for space if they need group work or a quiet room to focus. The library provides writing and math tutors if students need help. The writing tutor is located in the Citation Station area on the first floor. The hours for the writing tutor are 7- 9 p.m. on Monday, 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, 5-9 p.m. Wednesday and 5-7 p.m. on Thursday. The math tutor is located in room 211. The hours for the math tutor are 4-9 p.m. on Sunday, 7-9 p.m.

“I stress during finals week because there is so much going on,” said Earin Murrell, Tulsa freshman. “Not only do I stress over my classes but with everything that comes with the end of the semester as well. There's so much to get done already, the schoolwork and studying on top of that is just a lot to juggle. I often try take breaks in-between assignments so I won't go crazy. Most of my stress just come from being overwhelmed but in the end I know I can get it done.”

NAB’s midnight breakfast is from 9-11 p.m. on Monday, April 30.  This event is free to all students who present their NSU ID. NSU faculty and staff will serve a variety of breakfast such as eggs, sausage, biscuits, french toast, omelets and more. There will be karaoke for students who want to participate and entertain their peers.

“I feel like my stress motivates me,” said Makenzie Bary, Inola sophomore. It helps me get things done especially since it’s at the end of the school year. That’s gives me more motivation to pass, I’ve come this far so I might as well finish with a bang.”
