The Joys Of The Summer For A College Student
Patrick Fore

Sorry to break it to you but you are basically an adult now. Well kinda – just enough of an adult to not pretend like you are in Phineus and Ferb’s summer gang. As a real mini adult you need to be using the summer to your advantage and you have a couple of options of what to do.


If you didn’t do so hot in a class – guess what?? You can take it again! Or you can always get ahead so you can move on to be a real adult. You don’t even have to take full load of classes but every little bit helps.

2. Work Work Work

How many jobs can you squeeze into one summer vacation? If you aren’t taking any classes then fill up your time with work and make some cash. If working during the semester messes with your grades too much, think ahead and stash enough money to get you through. If you are working, then you can’t spend any money.

3. Internship

If you are an upper classman you should be looking into this for sure. If you are looking to continue your education than you are going to want some professional development on your resume and this is the time to do it. Its like a mini job that may or may not be paid. Remember that it will pay off in the future.

4. A big kid job

Depending on your degree you might be able to get an entry level job in your field. Get in with a company and make friends for when you graduate.

Basically, summer is now changed forever and you need to embrace the change. Welcome adulthood my friends!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
