Video: Students Talk About How Preparation For End-Of-The-Semester Exams Is Going

Yes, it's that time of the year when our hard-working Ferris State University students see the end of the semester coming up and their plans for winter break move into focus.

Before then, however, students need to finish up their studies for the semester and finish up strong with a great effort on their final exams.

With that in mind, student videographers Angie Walukonis and Byron Williams, who was a very special guest videographer for us while job shadowing, conducted campus interviews to ask students how preparation is going for finals.
