With my credit card in hand, I approached one of the many lovely, solar-powered kiosks to generously offer a financial tribute to De Anza for allowing my vehicle to occupy their pavement.

DA Voices: ‘How do you feel going into finals week?’

“DA Voices” is a recurring feature used to spotlight De Anza College’s diverse community voices. We ask the same question to different people and arrange their quotes so that readers can see varying points of view. This week, our reporter Leart Grbeshi asked, “How do you feel going into finals week?”

 


Citali Martinez, 21, film major, is feeling overwhelmed by the upcoming finals week due to an unexpected workload.

“I came to community college because I couldn’t afford or allocate enough time for university, so I didn’t expect a lot of work, but I’m stressed.”

Edward Tran, 18, biology major, is less stressed about finals week approaching compared to quarters prior.

“But I’m not procrastinating as much as last quarter, so I feel better than I did last quarter,” Tran said.

Sydney Steese-Bradley, 19, graphic design major, feels mostly prepared for upcoming finals. 

“I’m a little stressed but I’m okay … For the most part,” Steese-Bradley said.

Tok Dai, 25, engineering major, describes his lack of anxiety approaching finals week as, “Nothing too overwhelming; tests are always tests.”

Maki Tsukasaki, 27, children’s care major, is staying optimistic entering their finals week this quarter.

Tsukasaki said, “(I’m) a little bit nervous, but I believe I’ll be fine. (I’m) staying positive.”

Hai Le, 20, aerospace engineering major, is feeling slightly nervous about approaching finals week but confident in his instructors.

“(I’m) a little nervous, but the classes I’m taking have taught me and prepared me well,” Le said.
