I am gonna come right out and say it: I love summer school. Maybe it’s the place, maybe it’s the people, but Sophomore Summer has been one of the best summers ever. Forget the 6:30 workouts and normal class load. The College on the Hill makes for a perfect summer spot. Here’s why.
Lazy days at the riverWith no air conditioning in dorms and the heat of summer, one of the only ways to cool off (besides a cold shower) is heading down to the river. Time spent at the river is never time wasted.
Workouts with my people
Although 6:15 lift is not the most fun thing I have ever done, working out with the other '18s motivates the hell out of me. I absolutely love getting to train with my four best friends leading up to our junior year. Also, it is infinitely better than completing the summer workout packet at home (sorry squad...).
Homework on the Green (doing anything on the Green, really)
While homework during summer months is not an ideal situation, sitting out in the green makes it much more bearable. The green is a great place to make everything better, from eating meals to studying for exams to evening sunsets.
I love the '17s and my '19s, and even my incoming '20s, but having only the '18s on campus is an awesome opportunity to meet other classmates. While I am not one to branch out much, I have more this term than the previous two years combined. And though I have made new friends this summer, I can assure you that it is rare to see me without my fellow DWB '18s.
