I’ve talked to a few of the second-year students in the past couple of days. The adjectives I’d use to describe them and the looks on their faces: relieved, relaxed, and, in some cases, resigned. One of them got a library job offer that you could see made his face light up. The look on his face gave me some hope.
To a one, they can’t wait till April 30, when every last vestige of group projects, finals, and graduation will be done and over with.
