re: LSU Finals Week Stories
I was studying in 3rd floor in Middleton, right outside the (then very squeaky) door on the short side of the building from the elevator. There was a small stack of cubes, maybe one table.

There were two colored children running throughout the stacks, in an out the door; they were having a good time. Kids were probably 8 and 10 years old. This goes on for over an hour, disrupting everyone every 5-10 minutes.

Finally, this guy stands up and stops them, says something sternly along the lines of "this is a library, people are trying to study, this isn't a place to play around and make a bunch of noise."

There was a short pause, then the older one say very bluntly "Shut up, you white bastard."

The guy is shocked and looks around in disbelief, hoping for back up I assume but everyone else was just as shocked and trying to muffle their laughter. The kids jist ran away laughing.

Forgot about this one. few years ago I'm studying on 3rd floor of Middleton and they're doing construction inside on the new math lab. I see police go in and look up. Construction worker takes off and the police immediately pull out a tazer and taze the frick out of the guy. He goes down with a big thud! Then the police with a super delayed reaction yell "get on the ground get on the ground!" and big fat donut eating officer runs and belly flops onto the perp! Then they hauled the guy out through a set of stairs in the back and threw him in a backup squad car

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
I had dropped out of LSU in 2011. I had to take summer courses in 2013 (9 hours with a 3.6 gpa to be eligable to return) and one of the classes was freshmen foundation for the B session of summer. I figured B session was after A session. I walked in 2 days before the final after realizing my mistake. I explained to the teacher. He gave me all the notes. I wrote a paper and took the mid term and final the next day in his office. I ended up with a B in the class becasue of the zero on attendance.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
Was in an upper level Econ class which was notorious for having a mid term from hell and having a very dry sarcastic idgaf type professor. Well, idiot college kid me has a come to Jesus moment during a night of getting plastered that the exam was the next morning. I was obviously not prepared. I immediately email the professor that I was ill & would not make the exam. He emails me back saying it's fine, but to meet him during his office hours when I am able. immediateoy schedule an appointment with my doctor for the following day & get a doctors note for an alibi. Show up to the professors office with note in hand, & paraphrasing here was told "i don't need that, & I don't care. Just show up for the final & it'll count as double". fricking win for me. Got out of taking the test from hell & taking that class's easiest test for double points

You should use this time to study so you don't become a failure.

JJK.

I was studying once at Middleton when I saw someone just get up, curse, throw their phone on the desk (shattering it), and leave. They left their books on the desk.

I guess they decided not to take that final?

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
Back when I used to be a not so great student, I needed a 65 on a particular final to pass the class.

I take the final, and it was incredibly difficult, and I wasn't feeling too good, but I figured I had an alright shot if the professor was generous with partial credit.

So I check Moodle a couple days later, and it shows that I got a 68/100 on the final. I was fricking pumped, and I told my friends that were in the class with me that I actually passed with a 68/100 on the final. Then one of them tells me that on his Moodle it shows him with a 150/100 on the final. My heart dropped. The final was out of 200 points, and whenever I saw that it was out of 100 on Moodle, I just figured that the professor translated our grade on the test to the 100 point scale. Nope, he accidentally forgot to put that the score was out of 200 points on Moodle. So in reality I got a 34 on the test, not a 68. It was a wild swing of emotions.

But I retook the class and got a B, so it's all good.

Moodle's UI must really suck. A lot of my professors couldn't figure out how to post things properly.

Happened again in December 2009. LSU was the only thing even opened in Baton Rouge that day.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
One year I had 3 exams on Tuesday and my last one was on Saturday sometime afternoon. I had an A in the class and after I took my 3 exams on that Tuesday I didn't open up a book.. I didn't study, made a D on the exam and finished with a C in the class. That's all I got.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
Once woke up early to take a physics final, took an adderall out of my bottle to and laid back down to let it kick in - woke up like 4 hours later again, a couple hours before the test, and flipped out for a second then went to try and study but couldn't focus.

Went and sat next to a girl a knew and calmly cheated off her for the whole test and got a B+.

Go to study for my last final at the end of the week, go to grab my final adderall and when I look down - still have two left - grabbed the wrong thing before the physics test which explains why i slept in and then didn't have an anxiety attack before/during the test.


ETA: I also ruined the curve on a lower math final when i got a 100 (had already taken Calculus in high school but wanted the easy A in college) - people were PISSED emailing asking what about the curve he had said there would be and all of that.

So teacher sent a mass email to the whole class saying that in response to all of the email he had received he felt it necessary to let the class know that he intended to curve the test; however, one student scored a 100 on it. I replied all on the email and told them it was me - good times cause i had a bunch of friends in the same class.

The word savage gets thrown around a lot. But I think it's appropriate here. Savage.

I'm guessing Moodle is an online module. I remember when they used to tape the grades to the outside of the classroom. You had to find your social security number on it to find your grade.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
My old roommate didn’t study at all for a final and had really bad test anxiety. Decided his only hope was to fake sick. He put his finger down this throat and puked all over the keyboard of Himes then runs to the bathroom.

He was able to move his test to Saturday morning.
