For the past two summers in college, I pretty much stayed home and did nothing with a couple occasions of going out to hang out with friends. However, this summer I decided that I should try and look for other activities to get involved in such as research or summer school. Previously, summer school was always associated with failing a class and having to retake it. But it’s different in college. Summer school is a choice to make. With this I hope to get ahead in my course work and perhaps in a summer in the near future, I’ll be able to study abroad somewhere before I leave my undergraduate life. However, it will be more difficult than regular classes because of the condensed curriculum — what is usually covered in 15 weeks of school now has to be covered in 4 weeks or 8 weeks, at least that’s the scheduling for summer school at my school. Can I do this I wonder?
