“Spring semester is always the longest; we’re finally at the finish line and I’m excited. I have been looking forward to this semester since I first started college. I am about to graduate and I’m ecstatic. This semester is taking forever to finish, but I am continuously counting down the days until graduation.  I am taking classes, and I have no choice but to pass all of them in order to graduate.”

“I just want this semester to be over with so that I can go to Miami and lay on the beach. This semester was challenging – dealing with some professors, the work load, and the commute (since I live in the Bronx). It has been stressful and I am just ready to get it over with. I will be graduating winter of 2017, and I am counting down the days, even though it is still far away. I’m happy for the graduates of 2017; they can scream freedom! I can’t wait until it’s my turn.”

“I have been living in Brooklyn for most of my life, which is one of the reasons I chose to attend Brooklyn College; it is not far from me and also because I have heard very good things about this school. I can’t wait until I graduate, even though it will be in two years. I get eager anytime spring semester is about to end.”
