The pressures of college push a lot of people to the brink of sleep deprivation and stress, sometimes at the cost of true learning.
In a more humane world it would be structured less like a military-mandated boot camp of knowledge, and would emphasize more personalized learning styles (luckily a lot of colleges already do this).
People who work on college campuses, particularly in the libraries and computer labs have seen students in all states of disarray, and the deadline antics can range from hilarious to worrisome, depending on the situation.
In a popular Reddit thread, librarians and college employees shared some of the most memorable moments from finals and midterms, and it'll make you want to hug the college student in your life.
A student had been in the library all night, and had a phone call with his dad where his dad apparently told him he wouldn't pay for tuition anymore. Student starts hitting the wall and screams "FINE, I WILL JUST HAVE TO DO GAY PORN THEN." And kept hitting the wall.
He must have done well enough for dad to keep footing the bill, because he was back the next semester.
