What do you listen to during finals?


This thesis proposal has got me down. Help me, 50 Cent!

It’s almost here – the end of the fall semester! With finals almost over, and the campus starting to empty out a bit, I asked the student employees here at Parsons Music Library what they listened to in order to survive the end of the semester.
