9 Places You Can Find College Kids In The Summer
Huffington Post

Looking for a college student while off campus during the summer? Look no further, here is a map of places they may be hiding.

1. Work Work Work.

Saving for all those tuition payments, books, school supplies, and money for the school year. Most students get a summer gig, something seasonal, but if you're really determined, you may have more than one job or a job you're carrying over part time during the semester.

2. Traveling.

Whether it is simple road trips on the weekends or weeks-long vacations out of the country, traveling is easiest during the summer as a college student. Loads of millennials prepare to tattoo their passports during the summer by creating new memories in many new places.

3. Working on their tan.

During the school year college students are so pale, so they have to take advantage of the beautiful sunshine outside. It doesn't matter if its poolside, laying on a beach, or just sitting outside - the young will always find a way to be in the sun.

4. Planted in front of a good show.

Netflix and chilling at its finest, college students tend to hibernate in the AC relaxing just about whenever they can and the summer is prime time for this. Summer reality shows like "Big Brother" and "The Challenge" are also great watches. After a long year of school and stress, a little mindless television never hurt anybody.

5. Preparing for the big return.

Towards the end of the summer, students begin to perfect their fall schedules and look into the finalizing details for books, parking passes, looking up professors reputations, getting in touch with their school friends, etc.

6. Trying something new and exciting.

From sky diving, parasailing, scuba diving, to new recipes, dances, tattoos and movies - new places and experiences are what make summer such a blast.

7. In summer courses.

I'm not sure how students do it, but so many have such a great work ethic and strive for even more accomplishments in the summer. You can find them back on campus, taking classes at a community college, or maybe even enrolled in an online program.

8. Catching up back home.

College kids love their friends from high school and the town they grew up in. You'll be able to find them with their old crew from school most likely blowing off some steam, sharing in old traditions, making new memories, and telling each other all the new gossip that is happening in their lives away from home. Being able to see family more often is also another great plus, especially if your college is far from home.

9. Spending money on everything fun they can think of.

While college students HAVE to save some of their money, the rest goes for things like paint nights, parties, clubs, beach trips, gas for road trips, pampering themselves, going out to eat, concerts, drinks, movies, souvenirs... the list goes on and on. They need to have things they can remember the summer by.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
