Regardless of the polarizing aspects of the American education system, the ever-present pause of summer vacation is an inarguable luxury; however, for many college students, particularly those who wish to expedite their graduation process, taking the summer off from school isn’t an option. A large portion of the country’s college student population will take courses over the summer, choosing to sit in a lecture hall rather than play Frisbee on a sunny day.
Those of you who have been enduring the summer semester already understand the unique pressures and expectations of the shortened schedule, but it’s not over yet. Here are eleven tips to supplement the winding down of the shortest semester in college; not only are these tips helpful and realistic, but they’ve been provided by fellow college students attending Berkley in California.

Hang in there! Only a few more weeks of summer school to go.
