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.


Yes. It's integrated with mylsu (where you schedule classes, request transcripts, etc..). Moodle is basically a changing hub that updates to your specific classes every semester and allows professors to post powerpoints, tests, grades, etc...

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
I just remembered a story. This was in.. I think 2002.. This was when it just became common for everyone to have a cellphone. It was a Construction Management class.. It was a 2000 level class, I forgot the class, but it was a bull shite class in which a lot of people in the class took as an elective.

The professor was cool one on one, but was an absolute dick head as a professor. It was in one of the bigger classrooms in the building that was called CEBA at the time.. And he took role every day. He had some rule where you couldn't miss more than 3 classes or some shite.. Anyway, the final comes around and he makes everyone put their book bags in the front of the class. Everyone had to put their book bag along the wall. He stressed to everyone that cellphones needed to be turned off. About 10 mins into class someone's phone goes off. He stops everyone and finds the book bag that had the cell phone ringing. Whoever owned it didn't come forward.

The phone stopped ringing and said he would let it go that time.. A few minutes later it started ringing again. Dude stops class, grabs the book bag and says "whoever is the owner of this book bag, come forward. We will not continue with the exam and I will grade as is if no one comes forward by the end of the exam. Some guy gets up, goes to the professor. The professor takes him outside... A few minutes later the professor comes in, the guy does not..

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
The talk about Saturday finals reminded me of this.

It was my second semester freshman year, and I was living in the dorms. We had to be out of the dorms by like 5pm on the last day of finals week (Saturday), and I had two finals on that day. Calc II at 10 am and Physics I at 12:30.

That was not a fun day

I just remember hitting refresh on that damn website where you scheduled test times a million times a minute to see if a later test slot would open up

I need to pass Plant Physiology to graduate. That's it. Everything else was set, just needed to get at least a C on the Final.

I challenged the professor to a race up and down the Life Sciences building for a C. He accepted and I won.

The best part of being dyslexic was thst I never had to do this if I didn’t want to. I took 3 test tops in himes. It was enough to know I hate that place. Also, have an irrational fear that room is going to get hit with a school shooter one day.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
back early 90s the drinking age was still 18.
I turned 18 during Dead Week of Finals my first semester at LSU.

On December 8th-9thish, I got in a fight in front of The Carwash(empty lot now) next to the Tiger Bar(The House now). The guy drove off around back of the Tiger Bar. I knew he was coming out that other side exit and I launched a 2x4 at his truck.

It fell about 147 feet short and went through the Tiger DJ's Mustang's Windshield.

I got beat by a cop shortly after and detained. Agreed to pay $800 for damage to that car to have charges dropped. Bussing tables sucked that entire Spring knowing where all my money was going.

Made 4 Cs and 1 B on my finals the next week.

Holy cow that was 24 yrs ago this week. I used to be a retard. A different kind of tard than I am now.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
This was second semester my freshman year. It was a Poli sci class I took as an elective. Instead of studying I was depressed my girlfriend and I had broken up like the night before so I was crying my eyes out watching dead poets society. The next day comes and I got very average grades on the multiple choice and short answer portion of the exam. All the grades for each portion came out at different times and the essay one came out last. Just before the exam I skimmed through one of the readings you could write about and barely got the gist of it. I basically quoted Dead Poets Societies famous line about "engineering/science are necessary to sustain life but art/love are what we live for". Ended up getting a 23/25 on the essay and passed.

Was in Middleton once studying. Super quiet, like eerie quiet but a ton of people studying and this dude ripped a huge fart. He started to laugh while everyone just stared. Well he kept doing it for the next hour, every few minutes and people were getting pissed. Finally he did it for the last time and this chick came out of nowhere and threw a gatorade bottle at him and screamed "you fricking pig, go somewhere else" and everyone started clapped. Dude got up, flipped everyone off and left.

She should've been hung from the bell tower. Some people are too stupid to be allowed to live in a civilized society.

re: LSU Finals Week Stories
This is not a great story, but it's kind of cool, I suppose. This is from waaaaaay back. 1980's.

I HATED doing the spoken-language part of my French final exams. The teacher usually read from a script and you had to answer every question perfectly or get dinged on points.

So I talked to a French major outside in the hallway before I was called in, and she was kind of cute (no pics). We mocked the verbal test and I asked her out afterward. She said yes, so... good for me, I felt great when I got called in.

I go into the room... and whoaaaaaa.... this is not my French teacher. They called in some extra faculty or something to do this, and this is one of the best-looking women I've ever seen (no pics). Waaaay better looking than that bitch I just asked out in the hallway.

I would love for this story to turn into Penthouse Forum, but sadly, it doesn't... but I had a lot of trouble concentrating. So I mention to her that I just got through asking a girl out in the hallway, and we just have a conversation in French about that. No stupid script. And I actually got the French right, because I enjoyed the conversation.

This marked the one and only time I used actual French in a conversation. A good memory of Finals week.

Man, I hated the oral exams when I took Spanish.

Luckily our teacher was cool about them, and as long as you didn't frick up too bad, you at least got a B.
