Now that finals week is finally behind us, it's time we give a major thank-you to the ladies that got us through all the rough spots: the Her Campus National Team! Without their help and their oh-so-needed 2014 Finals Survival Kits, our spirits (and our budgets) would have been pretty low that week.

No two Skiddies are the same. When we arrived on campus our freshman year, we all wanted to learn different things, things that mattered to us: some were interested in Eastern religions, others in gender bias, others in Foucault, and still others in biochemistry (those brave, brave souls). While we’ve all developed our own unique sets of scholarly knowledge along the way, we’ve also picked up tidbits here and there that have nothing to do with our studies: how to survive in a forced triple, how to stand out from the crowd on Fun Day, and how to find free food on campus when our wallets are feeling light.

‘Tis the season to chill on the green! Since the weather’s been nice (finally!), chances are you’ve seen all of these types in action already. We wanted to give these guys the spotlight to emphasize just how bizarre (and at the same time incredible) the Skidmore green can be.

It's almost time to take a break from studying for finals and writing those last minute papers, because the best night of the year is this Sunday: Wafflefest! Let's be honest, plates full of breakfast foods and desserts make everything better, so head down to the Dining Hall to indulge in some delicious treats. With all the hard work you're doing, you know you deserve it. Admission is free for all students, so Wafflefest will likely be packed by 8pm. Make sure to get there early if you want to avoid waiting in line for your favorite pancakes, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and dessert pizzas. See you all there!     READ MORE
