For all you freshmen who think you have it bad, I present to you the story of Zeus:
Once upon a time there lived a student in the great halls of TJ, somewhere on the 4th or 5th floors. Little did he know come semester's end he would be making UMR history, and sacrificing himself for the sake of all UMR students.
Throughout the semester, he was an average student, much like you and me. Not too good, but not too bad, and like most students, he was hoping for strong finish come finals week. Sadly, he failed to check his finals schedule before the weekend hit, and was harshly surprised that he had all of his finals that very Monday. He was so lucky that none of them ran together, leaving him almost no ground to stand on with his professors.
What was this fateful student to do? He surely couldn’t study for all of his finals in the time he had left, but if he didn’t he would surely fail his classes.
Thinking like any logical person, he decided that if he was going to go out, he’d leave his mark on the campus. That Sunday night, he snuck all throughout TJ, collecting as many fluorescent light bulbs that he could. From Hallway to Bathroom he brought the building down to darkness, collecting them all in his room. He barricaded the elevator, and double barricaded his door, for come morning, he would be Zeus!
As the first students left for their finals, he flung open his windows, declaring himself Lord over all he could see (which thankfully wasn’t much), and throwing his “lightning bolts” at all those who opposed him (or just looked like a fun target). Thankfully, only cars were damaged, and none of his faithful subjects were injured.
When the brave forces of the University Police arrived, they too were not spared. He lashed at them with tremendous force, hurling 2 at a time! But sadly, they eventually broke through to his room, bringing his reign over the TJ parking lot to an end.
Why you may ask, is this brave warrior to be held into legend? From that day forward, UMR Administration declared that no student would have to take more than 2 finals in any given day due to “mental strain”.
Thank you Zeus, for your sacrifice so we all may live through finals.
[For all you doubters out there, this story is real, and can supposedly be proven]

He was a guy that ran to every class. If you saw someone running on campus that was him. He was here a few years back. I remember seeing him on campus winter time wearing some kind of orange life vest.
