Celebrating the end of the quarter

If you are anything like me, you are more than ready for this quarter to be over and to put all of your academic worries behind you. While we unfortunately are not done yet, it is never too early to start planning how you will celebrate such a huge occasion. Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate kicking your finals butts and finishing the quarter out strong.

Book buy backs

Advertise with the Front

Western has this amazing little thing called book buy backs. Book buy backs happen at the end of each quarter inside of the bookstore on the entrance level. Book buy backs is one of my favorite things about the end of the quarter. I don’t know, there is just something about selling your much hated books back after you are done with all your classes that makes me feel great. It’s like a kick in my classes butt. It really gives you the feeling that you are finished with the quarter and there is nothing you can do about it anymore. And, they give you a decent chunk of money for your books in cold hard cash, baby!

Go on an adventure

During dead week and finals week I spend a RIDICULOUS amount of time on campus, either in the library on in Academic West (my favorite study spot). Now that you are done with all your tests, emerge from the dungeon that in campus and GO OUTSIDE! Go adventure at Larabee State Park or Whatcom Falls and forget about that finals stress by soaking up some good ol’ vitamin D.

Throw a party

There is no better way to forget about everything that is school related than to have a kick-butt summer themed party. Grab an ice cold one and put on some good tunes and dance the night away. Invite all of your friends and you all can relish in the fact that it is now summer.


don’t know about you guys but during dead/finals week I probably live off of about 10 hour of sleep…in all…for two weeks. So, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GET SOME SLEEP! You feel like sleeping in until 3p.m., do it. It’s 6:30 p.m. and you’re a little tired, take a nap who cares if it ruins your night of sleep you don’t have to be up in the morning for class anyways. Want to waste a beautiful day curled up in bed in your footy pajamas, get down with ya bad self and freaking do it!

And last but certainly not least treat yo’self. Treat yourself to any and all of your guilty pleasures because, hey you deserve it!
