Twas the night before finals, when all through BU
Every creature was studying, staying up way past two
The notes were highlighted, the flashcards were made
In hopes that professors would curve final grades
The students were restless, sitting in their chairs
While images of “F’s” caused them to pull out their hair
Professors with their Scantrons and the TAs to grade
And once they’re turned in–all they can do is pray
The students were stressing, for they did not know
The ERC study tips that they should soon follow
The note-taking tips and how to manage your time
Are available for free! They don’t cost a dime!
But of course, dear reader, you know much better
Because you come to our workshops, you’re a real go-getter!
So you’ve learned our tips, and you’re taking them all
And we know that you’ll pass all your finals this Fall.
The library has become the hottest club in town
Students pile up in every cubicle around
The air in the place is filled with finals-week gloom
And students can’t wait until they get back to their rooms
Now head on back and get a good night’s rest
Because 7-8 hours of sleep will help you pass your test
You can study when the sun’s up and the morning knocks
Just make sure that you study in 2-hour blocks!
Time for a study break and a quick trip to Rize
Because meals are important, no matter the size
So make sure to eat, and take a deep breath
Because stressing too much won’t help you pass that test.
The day has finally come and you’re feeling prepared
As your classmates gather around the class looking scared
You finish your test. Sweet success, you can taste it!
Since you used ERC tips, you know you just aced it.
And now finals are over and you get to relax
It’ll be quite a while before you come back
And we’ll be here at 100 Bay State, crying out with glee
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL from the CCD-ERC!
