What’s your favorite way of de-stressing during finals?
MD: Going on frequent walks around Occom Pond and blasting Taylor Swift.
SA: Going on runs and taking coffee breaks with friends.
YK: Getting meals and hanging out with my friends.
CC: Reading a middle school-level book like “Percy Jackson” or the “Hunger Games.”
EJS: Studying off-campus and/or outside.
NZ: Long showers and walks on the Green.
CB: Good music.
KS: My friends and I always spend a night making pasta for dinner and eating together, which is really fun near the end of the term.
NH: I like taking walks around Occom.
The stacks: love them or hate them?
SA: Both, tbh.
YK: Hate them.
CC: I hate them when it’s dark, but the sixth floor in natural light is okay.
EJS: I have neutral feelings towards the stacks.
NZ: Literally never been in the stacks. They seem too depressing.
CB: Hate to love them.
KS: I hate them a lot because it always gets too cold.
NH: I like certain areas, like the East Asian Room, but I never study in the stacks near First Floor Berry, for example.
BJ: Too cold.
Do you like to study with friends or alone?
SA: Alone. People are so distracting.
YK: Usually alone.
CC: With friends if I don’t have to concentrate too hard.
EJS: It depends on how urgent or thought-intensive my work is.
NZ: Both. If I have a really big or important assignment, I’ll hole myself up in Sanborn. But if I just have busywork, or an easy reading assignment, I prefer to be around my friends.
KS: I like studying with friends because they keep me accountable.
NH: If I’m studying for an exam I study alone, but if I’m doing light work I study with friends.
BJ: Depends on the vibe ya know.
Are you a big procrastinator?
MD: I’m a super productive procrastinator. I’ll clean my room, call my family and catch up on the news all to avoid homework.
SA: Not at all! If I have one thing going for me, it’s my self-discipline.
YK: No, it gives me too much anxiety!
CC: Yes, but I always know I can finish. I just prefer to work at a slow, steady pace with lots of breaks.
EJS: No, procrastinating stresses me out.
NZ: Not really. I don’t like having assignments looming over me, so I try to get everything done as soon as possible.
CB: One hundred percent yes.
KS: Not really because I like to be organized and get things done early.
NH: Yes. I always have been.
BJ: I can literally only work when a deadline is quickly approaching.
Whats your opinion on dance-floor PDA?
MD: Not pleasant but I don’t judge.
SA: Guilty of it myself, but gross if it’s anyone else. I’m aware that this makes me a hypocrite.
YK: It’s ... fine?
CC: If it’s consensual, hell yeah.
EJS: I respect the hustle.
NZ: Get a room!
CB: If it’s your thing, go for it.
KS: Everything’s fine in moderation.
NH: Do it, but don’t do it in the middle of the dance floor. Like, go to a corner or something.
BJ: Huge fan if it’s consensual.
What time of the day are you most productive?
MD: From 9 to 11 a.m.
SA: After dark, but not too late.
YK: In the early morning and late at night.
CC: Early afternoon.

KS: Definitely mid-mornings and afternoons.
NH: In the mornings before my 12.
BJ: Morning Novack at like 8 a.m., unfortunately.
Have you ever pulled an all-nighter?
SA: For fun, but never for work.
YK: Not in college, no. And I firmly plan not to.
NZ: Nope. When I get tired, my mind literally shuts down. If I pulled an all-nighter, I wouldn’t be productive at all.
CB: Yes. Many times, unfortunately.
KS: Once last year when I saved seats for graduation, but it was not a fun experience, and I don’t plan to repeat it.
NH: Yes, last Thursday actually.
BJ: Yes, but mostly only for art classes.
