Fall 2004 Final Exams. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. The Student Handbook requires that you take your finals at the times scheduled, even if you have two exams in a row, or one at 6:00 p.m. and another at 8:30 a.m. the next morning. Absent extraordinary circumstances, the only exception is if you have three exams scheduled consecutively (which rarely happens) or two exams scheduled at the same time. If you believe you have an exam conflict or other circumstances justifying the rescheduling of an exam (see Student Handbook sections 7.2 and 7.3), please complete a Final Exam Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (go to https://webmail.kentlaw.edu/exchange/logon.asp, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate form). The deadline is Friday, November 19. The Registrar's office will notify you of the rescheduled date, time, and location of your exam.

Availability of Professors' Old Exams. Many professors make their old exams available for students to review. Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library. Exams after 1992 are available online by going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm, clicking on the Exams Database link on the left, and then clicking on the link indicated there.

Exams on Computer Sign-Up. Many professors allow students to take their exams on computer (either lab computers or students' own laptops, or both). Please see the Registrar's section of the Record for details about the procedure for signing up.

ASP Program on Preparing for and Taking Exams. The Academic Support Program will present its final Fall workshop on Tuesday, November 9, 11:30-12:30 pm, in the Auditorium (for day students) and Wednesday, November 10, 5:00-5:45, in Rm 590 (for evening students). This workshop will focus on strategies for preparing for and taking exams and will feature comments from both the faculty and student perspectives. Although the workshop is mainly aimed at first-year students, all students are welcome to attend. If you are unable to attend but would like to see a videotape of the program, contact Jamie Lake (e-mail: JLAKE).

Joke of the week. A guy took his cross-eyed dog to the vet and asked, "Is there anything you can do for him?" The vet picked the dog up and peered into his eyes. "I'm going to have to put him down," the vet said finally. "Just because he's cross-eyed?" asked the owner. "No, because he's heavy," said the vet.
