What To Do When You Miss College During The Summer

All any college student can think about when the month of April is coming to an end is summer break. Usually everyone rejoices when finals are over and you can finally go home for four months. When you finally get home after a long day of traveling all you want to do is sleep! Then after a week or so you realize all you are doing is sleeping.. You wake up one day extremely bored and come to the realization that you wish you could go back to college (just without the work of course). Here’s what to do when you miss college to pass the time for the next four months of summer break!

Learn How To Cook

We all know how gross the dining hall can be and sometimes instead of eating at the dining hall you’ll find yourself eating chicken fingers and fries everyday with honey mustard because you feel like you have no other options. Then one day you look in the mirror and realize you’ve gained more than the freshman 15. Summer break is the perfect time to learn how to cook somewhat healthy foods so then when you get back to campus you won’t be afraid of gaining weight. There are ovens and stoves in the dorm buildings so you will never have to worry about not being able to cook!



Join A Gym

If you are saying that you have never thought about coming back to school shocking everyone with your new rocking body you are lying. If you join a gym during summer break you’ll be motivated to work out because of the money you have to spend on the membership. It’s always a plus coming back to college feeling confident!

Learn To Drive

Believe it or not a lot of people come into college not knowing how to drive. If you already have your permit and you are 18 years old you’ll be able to get your license before summer ends! It’s the perfect thing to do over the summer so you can make sure you can plan a day to visit all of your college friends over the break!
