The Big Screeeeam

I'll be honest with you: I think of myself as a true Cornellian. "Big Red Blood flows through my veins" (well, technically my arteries). Basically, I love almost everything about this place.

Finals are an exception.

Luckily, Cornell does a lot to help its students through this rough time we (fondly?) call "Finals Week." Slope Day was last Friday, which was an awesome way to end the semester and relax before diving into studying. Also, CU schedules a 72-hour-or-so study period following the weekend after classes end, so as long as you budget your time well, getting ready for finals is totally doable. Better yet, free massages are offered during study week! It doesn't get much better than that.

But what I really want to talk about is my all-time favorite destresser: The Big Scream. At midnight the night before finals begin, students all over campus run outside their dorms and scream--and I mean SCREAM--to release all that crazy pent up energy from studying for finals. Don't believe me? Check it out:

Epic, right?
