Alright, so this sounds a little dramatic, but it is a significant experience in everybody’s college career. The residence halls close at 6pm on Friday May 21. That means that you need to have everything out of your room by that date. Don’t worry, you can do it!
Ok, here we are, whether for the first time or the last, you’ve just completed finals. CONGRATULATIONS! Now it is time to leave the freedoms of residence hall life and return to the nest for a couple of months. For most of you, this has been dealt with before, but there are still a lot of you out there who are new to this whole “going home” thing. Here a few tips to help you make the most of you’re summer.
1. Spend time with your familyWhether or not you believe it, you’re family probably missed you while you were away at school. For some of you, it has been a couple of months since you have last seen you’re family and you’re house. While you are home, you will have ample opportunity to catch up with you’re family and regale them with tales of your college experiences. Spending time at home with your family is also a good time to “recharge” and stay focused.
2. Adjusting to life at home– You walk in the door, put down you’re bags, give a big hello to you’re family and walk upstairs to you’re bedroom where you are ready to just lay down for a second and… wait, what is this exercise machine doing there? What happened to my room!?!?… just kidding. Ok, so you’re parents probably didn’t convert your room into the fitness lair they’ve always dreamed of, and things probably haven’t changed too much. What may be difficult however is falling back into you’re parents way of life. As long as you stay cooperative and be flexible, you will have an enjoyable summer.
3. jobs or internships– Getting a job or intership will probably be one of the more productive options you can choose during your time off. It is something that can relieve the boredom during the dog days of summer, and can help bring in funds or bolster your career goals. If you need help finding an internship, career services is an excellent office on campus that can help you with finding a summer intership.

Well that’s all for now, bye everyone!
