Summer Break Gives You The Most Free Time, Don't Let It Go To Waste

During the summer, students should experience the joys of minimal deadlines and work on developing innovative ideas for their upcoming future.

Summer Break Gives You The Most Free Time, Don't Let It Go To Waste
Erikka Chowdhury

It is almost two weeks into summer vacation and I’m pretty sure many of us are still lingering over the contagious dilemma regarding what we should be doing. I know I am! As depressing as it may sound, summer vacation cannot be treated as a complete summer vacation for college students. As a matter of fact, summer is the ideal moment in which we have more free time and can accomplish a lot of work while relaxing. We are not constantly on the run unless we have work, internships, or even research. Not everything has to be performed within a rigid time constraint and we are not always under the pressure. Minimal pressure leads to reduced stress which equals relaxation and optimum levels of productivity.

Also, summer is the time in which we should engage in meaningful conversations with colleagues, friends, and family because this is when we have the most free time. These summer conversations can bolster your growth as a person and make you more aware of the turnout of life after graduation.

I strongly recommend everyone to not lose their personality over the summer. Everyone should strive to fully utilize the summer break offered to you by traveling extensively! In other words, you actually learn the most while you are traveling and it further proves how outgoing you really are. During the summer, students should experience the joys of minimal deadlines and work on developing innovative ideas for their upcoming future.

Starting next week, I will be taking summer classes and volunteering which will definitely keep me busy this summer! The bright side of my summer would be interacting with my friends, classmates, and people on a daily basis while being outdoors most of the time! Being a nature lover, I rejoice the most when I'm outdoors and keeping myself occupied with many things on a regular basis

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
