The week before finals is very much a week of mixed emotions. It is possibly the easiest work load a student has other than syllabus week, but finals week force the student to begin studying. The weather tends to be nice, but students have to start turning for finals. Summer is just two weeks away, but to get to finals, students must get through finals. Basically any benefit that occurs during the week before finals is canceled out by the knowledge that finals is just one week away.
