A daring Thrill intern, Reed Dickerson, has graciously volunteered to list some of his looming first-year final concerns, which surely echo a lot of the worried thoughts that are swirling around in everyone’s heads currently.

Question #1: Oh my god finalsarecoming, finalsarecoming, finalsarecoming!!  What do I do?!?! WHAT DO I DO!? There’s so much pressure, like 50% of my grade is riding on this last test.  What if I fail, WHAT IF I FAIL!?!

If you make a manageable study plan and stick to it, you’re sure to be prepared.
