Editors’ note: Dead week 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, it’s dead week, Bears. It’s tragic that our five favorite days of the semester have been shortened to a mere three because it’s definitely not what we deserve. We’re ready to take on the challenge that is copious amounts of coffee, scribbling our notes onto our flashcards until our hands can’t take it no mo’ and learning everything that’s been taught to us since that last midterm as we scan through our problem sets and readings.

But soon it will all be over, and we will be free at last. Some of us will be free for good, while most of us will at least be free to bask in five weeks of doing nothing.

Hang in there, Bears. Stay strong, and happy dead week to you all.

Peace, love and Clog.
