Study Period is the time in between the last day of class and the first day of finals. It is also the time to catch up with friends, sleep, eat that dessert you deserve, drink a lot of coffee and/or tea, and just be amazed at all you’ve accomplished this semester :)
But, don’t let your mind wander too much…
Every professor has their own parameters in terms of finals. Papers, projects, presentations, posters, powerpoints, and of course exams. Exams are held during the self-scheduled exam period over the course of four days.
Smith College expects all students to be honest and committed to the principles of academic and intellectual integrity in their preparation and submission of course work and examinations.
Students and faculty at Smith are part of an academic community defined by its commitment to scholarship, which depends on scrupulous and attentive acknowledgement of all sources of information, and honest and respectful use of college resources.
Final Exam Information
I had three exams last semester. One was taken on the last day of class and the last two were self scheduled. During the given time frame, you decide when to take your exams. You must arrive on time (which means early) to receive your exam and choose a room to earn that A.
This is also the season of papers and projects. This semester I have all projects and no exams. Most of my friends (humanities majors) are VERY busy researching and writing papers. But, a lot of this is dependent on the professor.
I want to wish you all good luck on your finals if you are currently in school! Also, congratulations to those who will be receiving their Spring term acceptance any day now!
If you did not get accepted, please keep in mind that Admissions could only select a small number and that there is a chance for the Fall semester.
