Signs you had an 8 a.m. lecture

Hopefully not all of us have had an 8 a.m. class during our college careers, but if you have, you know the feeling: the struggle of getting up two (to five) hours earlier than your roommates, taking a shower half awake and walking up the literally never-ending Berkeley hills to your

Quiz: How many assignments do you have due this week?

“What assignments do I care about least?” “What’s the lowest grade I can possibly get without failing out of this class?” It’s that time of year again, when every student has started to ask these pressing questions. With finals season just around the corner, we at the Clog decided to make
