As the beginning of a new semester ap­proached, joyful and enthused Y2s came back to their alma mater willing to share amazing holiday impressions with colleagues. Nothing foreshadowed troubles. However, when they entered Soros for the first time in 2012, they were suddenly seized by a feeling of the un­known. It didn’t look like a usual course was going to start. An old and experienced profes­sor, Peter Högfeldt, seemed neither friendly nor cordial. His speech of ‘welcome’, which lasted for four, plunged Y2s and lots of re-tak­ers into despair. A pile of harsh requirements listed on 40 pages shocked the students. Fi­nancial Economics was supposed to be ex­tremely tough, but no one could imagine the real level of toughness. It turned out that the professor enjoyed pointing at a random person and asking to continue his thoughts. Therefore everyone had to wear name tags in order to be easily identifiable. Missing either a lecture, a seminar, or a colloquium was equal to imme­diate fail (in our case, death). Later on, poor students were overloaded by a huge amount of reading packages, which weighed as much as a thin Y1. The climate in the auditorium was becoming more and more stressful. The weak-nerved even felt dizzy and rushed to Maja’s of­fice to get some medicine. But the lecture was far from the end.

All this nightmare was to be conducted by many ‘supervisors’ as following: the lecturers themselves (a Swede and a Latvian), a bossy BICEPS person, a brainy SSE Riga graduate and the Fantastic Tenner. By and large, each and every was very sophisticated and ferocious in terms of torturing ‘fresh blood’ with various assignments, term papers, quizzes and so on.

After the exhausting introductory lecture, frus­trated students started rescheduling their rou­tine because it was highly recommended to study at least 12 hours on a daily basis. Some people suggested shortening time for having meals and intensively practicing speed read­ing, the others were strictly against sleep­ing more than 5 hours a day. BTW, taking a nap on sofas in RGSL became very popular amongst the Finance people. Actually, they spent the same number of hours on sleeping per week as Y1s did per day. All in all, there was the only aim – to survive(mentally and physically) – since Y2s were terrified by the example of depressed re-takers, who were experiencing the disaster for the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th time.

The biggest frenzy of the course was defi­nitely related to having the best seat, which launched the war of ‘occupying seats’, in which a lot of Y1s were deliberately involved. It is worth mentioning that the most persistent were Lithuanians, exemplifying impetuous aspiration to knowledge. The majority of stu­dents regularly invaded the lobby, the library; apart from this, they found out the codes to some of RGSL auditoriums.

People were not able to take care of their appearance, nutrition or leisure anymore. A wave of pessimism covered SSE Riga. No­body wanted to break any of those deathly deadlines. Everyone did his/her best to en­dure the finance torture…
