Nathaniel Sparks, a senior from Pleasant Plains studying mechanical engineering, lounges in his hammock Tuesday outside of Bailey Hall. Sparks said he recently bought the hammock to replace his old one and thought today was the perfect day to test it out. “It’s all about the illusion of floating on air,” Sparks said. With finals closing in, Sparks said it is important to find down time to relax. “You can’t go into finals too stressed out,” Sparks said. “If you do, you’re just going to do horribly.”
