When you’re a college student April is probably the worst month of the whole year. April is the last month before you’re released from summer, meaning that at this point you have multiple papers to finish, exams to study for, trying to maneuver your next year schedule, housing applications, and applying to every summer job/internship available in your area, while everyone keeps asking about your summer plans. At this point, you can’t even find time to go for a run or a quick coffee at your favorite spot.  You thought last year senioritis was bad, well springitis is even worse!

Here are some questions that will most likely  recognize if you have springitis:

  • Should I do my homework? Or should I lay out in the 80 degree weather?
  • Did the teacher say group project?
    • How am I supposed to gather a group of several people, who only want to think about summer. HOW!
  • How many days left until I can leave?
  • How many miles away is the beach?
  • 20 Days. (5 minutes later) is it still 20 days?
  • Excuse me, professor, what is your attendance policy?

Springitis is a real issue. Repeat: REAL ISSUE. If you haven’t been affected by springitis I advise you to remain in the library, focused, and with a mask on. Unfortunately, I have come down with springitis, and my doctor prescribed ice cream, enjoying the weather, and the occasional study session. For those who haven’t felt the effect of summer being right around the corner, save yourself before it’s too late, and find a cure for the rest of us.


Where did April go? Easter break is so late this year that after this three-day week—Fontbonne cancels classes for the Thursday and Friday of Easter weekend—there will only be one more week, which will also be cut short by Fontbonne Day, a day of service but no classes.

What this means for students is that we’ve just about all hit that delightful point in the semester where we have a final project in every class. This is unbelievably stressful for everyone going through this experience.

How do I cope? I think about it like this: every final project that I finish is basically one entire class that I’m done with. For instance, I just handed over a final paper for Sociology Internship I, which should wrap most things up now that I have a secured internship for this summer. That takes me down from 15 hours to 12 in effect. For every paper I write at this point, it’s three hours of class I don’t stress about.

Of course, not every student has this, because the non-liberal arts students—Math majors, Bio majors, etc., may God have mercy on their souls—will probably have a painful week of final exams, which can make or break your grade. Well… welcome to the college life!

It’s amazing, too, to think that I’m already talking about the semester’s end. Whoa, April, let’s slow down just a little bit here… But really, we’ve only got two more weeks after this one! Summer’s right around the corner… so while I might sound like I want April to slow down, don’t let me fool you—April can hurry right along and get out of the way so May and Summer can get here sooner! Just… give me time to finish my work first, okay?
