The Gavel Groove: Feel-Good Songs for Finals

We're finally in the home stretch. Finals are ~finally~ here, and it's not going to be easy. From your intensive Biochemistry exam to your Sociology research paper, the next two weeks are not looking too bright. Few things can bring you down the way exams can, so we've created a feel-good playlist to boost your spirits. Take a listen during a study break or put it on while cooking yourself a brain-boosting meal to give you that motivation that you need. 

Best of luck on everything—you've got this!

Sincerely, The Gavel.
