College isn’t just about the booze and booty, you know. Other than that minor annoyance called CLASS and occasionally having to go, after college, you are actually expected to do some fairly scary things.

We’ve all been there. It’s the night before a test and through some combination of partying too hard, sleeping too late and just, ya know, taking other classes, you’re nowhere near prepared. Time for that most time-honored of college traditions (the kind that doesn’t involve keg stands and togas): the cram session.

As part of the school wanting you to become one of these “well-rounded people” they’re so keen on producing, they pretty much force you [...]
