A week of coffee and NBR

Finals week. It’s the time of every semester that students fear.

Final papers, exams and ever-so-dreaded group projects pile up and it seems like we will never get out of what can accurately be described as a scene from the “Hunger Games.”

Caffeine is treated like gold, sleep is cherished and hard to come by and if you listen closely, you can hear the occasional weeping of students on the third floor of the library.

A tradition strongly associated with this week is the Naked Bike Ride — an event where, on the last day of classes, students run naked laps on campus.

There have been discussions of how safe this is, and whether or not it promotes binge drinking and drug use by students.

The Naked Bike Ride is a tradition that creates lasting memories for many students and is a way to de-stress and unwind before finals week begins. If students are responsible and safe, there is no reason why they should refrain from participating in the event.

We at the Cynic hope everyone has a healthy and successful finals week.

Take time for self-care and remember summer is just around the corner. Thanks for reading this semester, and we’ll see you in the fall!
