Relaxation, Adventuring, and Goals

10 May

There is nothing more exciting than getting to the end of the school year. When the textbooks come to a close, the door to summer relaxation and adventure open wide and with that, the chance to set some new goals. This is the best time for students to take advantage of their freedom to get in some good times and some even better goal setting!

After a long and busy year, it’s only fair that our future biochemists and school teachers take a well-deserved break. Whether it’s between work or internships or if it’s between 12 hours naps, the summer is the perfect time to go out and have some fun. Of course, it’s important to stay busy (work and school are practically a year round thing), but it’s also important to take some time to sit back and soak in the sun.

And what better place to soak in the sun than good old Tucson? For students staying in town during the break, it may feel like there’ll be nothing to do in this impending ghost town, but that’s just not the case. From hiking to road trips up north, there is definitely more than enough to keep one busy if they’re willing to brave the heat. For those going out of state for the summer, well the possibilities are just about endless there too!

Students should also take advantage of the upcoming break to start thinking about what goals they want to accomplish for the fall semester. Many students begin to think about research positions or internship opportunities for their second school year but don’t realize the amount of planning and time it takes to find one, let alone schedule meetings and interviews! Many professors, graduate students, and organizations begin recruiting undergrads pretty early on, so it never hurts to start thinking about what’s next with a bit of wiggle room between semesters. Whatever it is students are looking forward to doing their second year at the university, there is no time like the present to get prepared.

The last day of classes is fast approaching us here at the university and it’s more than safe to say everyone is ready to wrap up. It’s time to make summer break worthwhile!
