This is a big week for thousands of Oklahoma college students. It's what's called "Dead Week," the week before final semester exams.

Monday was the final day of class for University of Tulsa students, who have until December 13th to finish papers, projects and study for tests. Students, like Shannon Koon, say they feel overwhelmed. "Just a lot of stress -- trying to hurry up, procrastination, last minute, trying to get things done." Nick Roth: "Pretty hectic and pretty stressful. The challenge of trying to get everything done on time and get it done well."

TU offers a number of activities to support students through finals, including "Subs and Rubs ", which is free massage and sub sandwiches. And Wednesday's "Jam and Cram," with study tips and "custom made" peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
