More than 20 million students are in the U.S., with more than 10,000 at UCCS. Their opinions matter.

Guillermo Gonzalez, junior, political science

What finals do you have and which ones are you worried about?

My ROTC final and my presidency final. With my ROTC final, it’s a lot of information put together, a lot of attacking, a lot of different types of strategies and maneuvers, a lot of different battle drills that we have to remember, and we have to put it all out at one time. It’s a lot to remember. And with my political science one, it basically deals with my critical thinking skills. I know the information, but I just have to put it together.”

What do you wish you could change about finals week?

I just wish that professors would realize that that’s not the only final I’m taking.”

Keegan Luke, junior, computer science

What finals do you have and which ones are you worried about?

Probably Discrete Math, Probability and Stats, simply because they are math classes. One is proofs, which I am terrible at. And the other one I would like to get a high grade on so I can improve my GPA.”

What do you wish you could change about finals weeks?

Actually, finals week is fine because it means I only have a few classes to worry about and some time in between to do some extra studying.”

Jeong Seo, sophomore, mechanical engineering

What finals do you have and which ones are you worried about?

Thermo and Chemistry. Just ’cause those two are my hardest classes.”

What do you wish you could change about finals week?

I wish it was longer. Instead of finals week, it should be like finals two weeks.”

Pedro Barrera, psychology, sophomore

How do you prepare for finals?

I usually try to take notes and look over my notes a week before it. And then, usually the night before finals, I stay up all night.”

What advice do you give others to study?

Don’t do what I do.”

What do you wish you could change about finals week?

That they weren’t all clumped up together.”
