Night before

'Twas the night before
finals, and all through
the college.
the students were
praying for last-
minute knowledge.

Most were quite sleepy,
but none touched
their beds. while
visions of essays
danced in their

were still drinking.
and hoping that
liquor would loosen
their thinking.

In my own room, I had
been pacing, and
dreading exams I
soon would be facing.

My roommate was
speechless. his nose
in his book, and my
comments to him
drew unfriendly

I drained all the coffee,
and brewed a new
pot, no longer caring
that my nerves were

I stared at my notes, but
my thoughts were all
muddy; my eyes went
ablur, and | just
couldn't study.

"Some pizza might
help," I said with a
shiver, but each
place I called refused
to deliver.

I'd nearly concluded that
life was too cruel,
with futures
depending on grades
earned in school.

When all of a sudden our
door opened wide
and Patron Saint Put-
It-Off ambled inside.

His spirit was careless,
his manner was
mellow, but
summoning effort he
started to bellow:

"What kind of student
would make such a
fuss to toss back at
teachers what they
toss at us?

On Cliff Notes! On Crib
Notes! on Last Year’s
Exams! on Wingit and
Slingit, and Last-
Minute Crams!"

“Your teachers have
pegged you, so just
do your best happy
finals to all, and to
all, a good test."

Finals bring the stress that students
expect. and the sniffles that they don't.
Stress and stress-induced illness be-
come problems during finals week.

coupled with lack of sleep. improper eat-

The American Institute of Stress
says increased stress results in increased
productivity. but only up to a point.

Most students push themselves far

Dr. Tim Nolan. of UK's mental

Nolan said recognizing stress-in
duced illness also becomes more difficult
during finals. because symptoms. such as
trouble concentrating and mood fluctua-

Lack of sleep is one of the most
prevalent characteristics of finals and
one of the most harmful. Amber Profitt.

He suggests students battle stress
during finals starts with common sense
approaches. Don't wait until the last
minute to manage your workload. eat

If they fail to do these things. Nolan
urges students to look for warning signs
that stress is becoming too heavy. l)e

tigue are signs the week has had a toll
on you and your body.

Amanda Kitchens. a communica
tions senior. has migraines year round.
Finals week is no exception. “My doe
tors say it‘s unexplained stress." she

"Finals add to it. and dead week
doesn't seem to exist with all the pro
jects that are due. I try not to get
stressed and end up more stressed out."

Often forgotten during finals is the
importance of a good support system.
Nolan says the support one gets from
family and friends is a crucial factor in
getting through this time "While stu-
dents tend to isolate themselves finals
week. it is important to stay in touch
with your support group and take time
out from studying."

Kitchens allows herself a time pert

day. while Profitt tights off stress and Ill

“At my house. we try to keep laugh
ing despite the pressure." she said
“Once we found old Halloween costumes
and studied in them. Another day was
temporary tattoo day. It‘s stupid. but
keeps us sane."

When a student does find himself

locked in and unable to relax. Nolan
says the first thing to do is to let some-
one know how you are feeling “If you're
getting overwhelmed. feeling poorly and
your support system is not available or

With its many study rooms, William 1’. Young Library has become a haven for students to study for their exams.

Library ideal for
finals cramming

Creeping up: Job actually gets easier for
Young Library staff next week as finals begin

By Pat Clem
Emmi xrws EDITOR

Dead week is almost over
and finals week creeps ever
closer. Students are rttnning
around trying to tie up loose
ends and most of all 1 last
minute studying.

But where are those stu
dents going to study? The
William T. Young Library
seems to be the place that stu-
dents frequent during this cul-
mination of the semester.

“There‘s probably about a
40 percent increase during ex-
ams week," said Judy Brown.
head of circulation. "We expect
an additional 5,000 more people
this week (based on last semes-
ter figures)."

The library is doing at least
one thing different than they
did last semester during finals
week in order to accommodate

“We got a lot of complaints
last semester about the library
closing on Friday and Satur-
day nights." Brown said. “So
this year. we are staying open
until midnight on Friday and

The library

puters available for use by stu-
dents. which includes the 182 in
the computing lab. There are
also 70 lap-tops available in the

“At certain times of the
day. (the library) can only get
so full,“ said Mary Molinaro.
team leader for the Young Li-
brary. “Our biggest times are at
night after 4 pm."

With additional students it
stands to reason the library
staff would be busier. but the
truth is quite the opposite.

“Our job actually gets easi-
er." said Kim Smith. 3 refer—
ence librarian. “Students are
done with all their research by

But some students are
running in to problems at the

“Actually I'm having a lot
of problems finding reference
materials." said Johnna
Hertzfeld. a political science
freshman. “I usually don't have

a problem finding the books I

But anyone that has been
by the library anytime recently
knows that construction crews
are making the place a little
less than quiet.

“We‘re putting in large
signs.“ Molinaro said. “We had
to wait on the stone and it came
from Germany. It took awhile
to get here."

The construction does not
plan to stop during the library‘s
busy week.

"We're trying to get it fin-
ished in time for graduation."
Molinaro said. “But we are
making them stop at 4 (pm).
because nights are our biggest

With so many students
coming to the library. some stu—
dents have trouble finding
room for themselves.

“During finals week it‘s
hard to find a table. but there
are a lot of secluded places,"
said Andrea Natale. an inte-
grated strategic communica-
tions sophomore. “It was bad
last semester."

Students should be careful
and avoid creating problems
that don‘t need to be created.
Paying overdue library fines can
absolve many such problems.

“If students owe more than
a certain amount. they won’t
get their diploma." Brown said.



Lexington is the summer
home for foreign students

Trips, hooks and more: 20-hour flights not
feasible, so students make best of time here

By Hanish Bhatla

Summer usually conjures
up images of lazy afternoons.
blockbuster movies and a break
from the hectic grind of term
papers anti finals. It is also the
time when students get a
chance to be with their families.

If your home is a 20-hour
flight from Lexington. visiting
folks over the. summer could
be an unfeasible and highly
expensive affair.

Chao leong. an electrical
engineering senior, is a resi-
dent of Macau. near China.
Having visited his parents last
summer. leong plans to spend
the upcoming break raising
money for tuition.

“I will be working on cam
pus as a research assistant in the
agriculture college." said leong.
who loves the warmth of Ken
tucky's summers. “I am also go-
ing to try and visit a few places.
like Cincinnati and Louisville."

Unlike leong. Leo Ac. a sec
ond—year pharmacy student, is
looking forward to being with
his family again in Beijing.

"1 am going home for at
least a month." said Ac. who

has been at lTK for five years.

Icon; and Ac are part of the
1.338 undergraduate and gradu-
ate international students at
UK who call Lexington their
home away from home. While
many of the students live at
UK‘s multicultural residence
hall. .lewell Hall. the majority
of the international students
choose to live in apartment
complexes scattered through-
out the campus.

“If they live on campus.
they have to move otit at the
end of the semester." said Car-
olyn Holmes. the foreign stu-
dent adviser at the Office of In-
ternational Affairs.

"There are about 750 gradu-
ate students. and most of them
tend to live in graduate student
housing such as Cooperstown
(Apartments)." she said.

The primary focus of inter-
national affairs is to help inter-
national students when they
first arrive at UK by meeting
them at the airport. solving
housing problems and staging a
til-day orientation program.

“fly the end of the semes-
ter. they are more aware of
their surroundings anti better
equipped to handle housing re—


quirements." she said.

With classes left for his
bachelor's degree. Ahmad Alka-
bra plans to catch up on a few
classes that would be critical
for his graduation plans.

“I am planning to take the
eight week session and then
visit my brother in Seattle.“
said Alkabra. an electrical engi-
neering senior. "This is my last
summer here. I always try to
take classes in summer school."

A resident of Syria. Alka-
bra plans on spending his free
time playing soccer outside
Seaton Center with his friends
and visiting New York.

“This is also a pretty good
time to catch up on some of the
movies.“ he said. “During the
semester. studying takes up
pretty much all of your time."

May 8 is the final day for
undergraduate students to
move ottt of the residence halls.
while the deadline is May 9 for
graduating seniors.

“For summer housing on
campus. Donovan Hall is the
only residence hall that will be
open." said Pat Whitlow. associ-
ate director of Residence Life.

“The hall opens at 2 pm. on
May 9 for students enrolled in
the four-week session." she said.

Students who do not have a
viable housing option at the
last minute are encouraged to
apply. Whitlow said.

By Jill Gorln

SGA Will“?

The Student Government
Association is well on their
way to making next year a suc.
cessful one.

“We‘re working on things
now,“ said Jimmy Glenn. SGA
president. “to help create the vi-
sion for next year."

SGA had its first meeting of
newly elected members Wednes
day to discuss plans for the sum
mer and the beginning of the
next school year. Yes. select SGA
members will even be meeting
the first Wednesday of every
month during the summer.

“We want to be here for the
summer." Glenn said. “That
way. in anything comes up. SGA
will be here to see about it.“

At the first meeting of the
summer. in June. Glenn and
vice president Whitney Speaker
will present the budget.

“I originally wanted to pre-
sent the budget for next year to-
day." Glenn said. “but the con-
stitution says we have to wait
until summer to present it."

“We‘re working on the bud-
get now." he said. “We're going
to have a carry-over next year
from this year. so that will help
us out a lot."

SGA is also in the process
of organizing an annual retreat
to inform members about how
SGA works. Some had conflicts
with planning the event and set-
ting a date as early as possible.
but others only had one key

“The four freshmen really

need to go.“ said Keisha Carter.
senator at large. “Because if
they don't. they‘re lost when
they come in here.

“We need to schedule it.
making sure they can come."
she said. “If not. then I hope all
of you take them by the hand
next year and show them what
to do."

Members were also assigned
to committees and some issues
for next year were discussed.

“Next year. we want to
have the elections committee go
to different schools and see
about online voting." former
president Nate Brown said.
“Also. we’re sending some SGA
members to a national confer-
ence about race and ethnicity
in Memphis." he said.

SGA will also distribute
crisis cards. with phone num-
bers for emergencies and a de»
tachable frame to students.

To take these trips anti
have the crisis cards. though.

more money needed to be set
aside for the project.

Brown proposed that SGA
use the funds from the follow-
ing four programs: alcohol-
awareness ($700). alumni re-
ception ($250). links ($400) anti
national affiliations ($1.100) to
fund these projects.

With new plans already in
progress. and members meeting
during the summer. officials
said SGA will easily get into the
swing ofthings in the fall.

“Jimmy and Whitney have
good ideas." said Andrea Valen-
to. the new College of Allied
Health senator. “We have a lot
of returning members. and
since we're getting prepared
now. it will really help us later.”

Even officials agree that
UK SGA will shine next year.

“I've been getting strong
feedback from the administra-
tion that this could be a memo-
rable year for SGA." Glenn
