1) Sure go ahead deactivate your facebook, twitter, etc.. however it always amuses us how everyone seems to be on facebook come crunch time. Better yet maybe download the self control app, just remember only block facebook… not your entire internet access, and no you can not use your smart phone.
2) Do not study with your friends especially the friends with anxiety issues. This will only make you even more stressed bringing your blood pressure to an all time high.

4) Finals is a time where many feel quite alone, but fear not food is always a college student’s best friend during these week of torture. Hit up the hub’s late night quesidillas or better yet order marvins soberly for the first time all year. Since you can’t drink your sorrows away this week might as well eat up.
