There are many benefits of attending summer school at the college of your choice. One being that you get to know your campus and you also get to meet other freshman students as well. I highly recommend coming to college for your summer semester because it gives you an insight on what being at college is like and it also allows you to see what college classes are like.
The people that are attending summer classes are usually freshman so you’ll get to meet a lot of people in your grade and make close bonds that will last a life time. The nice thing about being a freshman during summer session is that everyone is new, so making friends is easy since everyone doesn’t really know anyone. Also, if you get involved in any programs or organizations in the summer you’ll get to meet people that have similar interests as you.
There are tons of clubs and organizations at everything college, so you should use your summer semester to check out things that peak your interests. Another nice thing about attending summer classes is that you typically only have to take two to three classes so the work load usually isn’t bad.
After almost being done with my spring semester of college, I realized that my favorite semester at UCF was my summer semester. So, if you have any doubts or are hesitant on taking a summer semester at any of the colleges that you’re attending don’t because I promise you won’t regret it. Yeah it would have been nice to have an entire summer to myself and to not have to worry about homework or assignments and get to hang out with my friends back at home, but I know I made the right decision in enrolling for the summer semester.
