At exam time, it’s important to remember that everyone is stressed, including students, staff and faculty. This is a reminder that in stressful situations, civility and empathy become even more important than they usually are. Instead of arguing or posting unprofessional or demoralizing comments (including posts and photos) on Facebook, try spending a little time doing what makes you happy. Instead of focusing on others, focus on performing to the best of your abilities. In the end, choose to be a valued member of the Law School community rather than inciting frustration. Best of luck as you continue with your exams, and have a great holiday!Read More
