Not Dead Yet

Dear Students, 

I have only two quick items to pass on for finals week: 

1. First, a quote from Monty Python: "I'm not dead yet!" There are classes today. Don't forget we have an extra Monday this year (and hence forth each fall). Tuesday we can start "dead days." 

2. This week, final exams start. Even our "graduates" need to finish this semester before they can actually get their degrees. I could drone on and on about finals, but I will offer only my same two small pieces of advice: 

Sleep. You may think staying up all night studying is the best way to learn a semester's worth of subject matter, but your mind and body think otherwise. Get some rest. It is good for learning. 

Press on. You can always make progress. You may feel like there is too much to review and not enough time. You can always make good use of the time that you have. Don't waste it worrying. Use it studying. 

Work hard. Get some sleep. Ace your finals. 


Dr. Vanden Bout 

P.S. For those of you who have not watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail a thousand times, Google the quote for any number of video clips.
