Unpleasant “smell of success” at MIT finals week
BOSTON -- Student leaders at MIT are trying to rid the campus of a foul situation.
Students say that some are working so hard during finals week, they are failing when it comes to personal hygiene.
“Sometimes people will have marathon study sessions where they won’t necessarily shower or brush their teeth,” said a student.
So now, free samples of everything from deodorant to toothpaste are being handed out.
The school’s student senate put more than $400 of its funding to purchase the samples. They will be handing them out for free during the week of finals.
