Finals Week

StudentScreaming1On college campus’, during the week of finals, the dorms have set "quiet hours" so that people can study without being disturbed. Tradition has it that on the last night of finals at 12:00am everyone opens their windows and screams for exactly one minute.

On most campuses you can hear someone tell the story that one year, between 12:00 and 12:01am, a girl was brutally raped and murdered and no one heard her scream for help because of the traditional racket put on by the rest of the student body.

Now, according to the story, any one who screams during finals week will be expelled from the school.

A Perfect GPA

Many students have been told, and unquestioningly believe, that if your roommate dies you will get a 4.0 grade point average for the rest of the semester (or the rest of the four years you are in college).
