Athens, OH 10 September 2019 –
This summer was very busy for me. I decided to take BIOS 1700 and COMS 1100 in the first summer session at OU. I wasn’t very excited about classes taking up the first part of my summer; however, it ended up being a pretty good deal. The classes were manageable, and they felt like they were over before I knew it.
It feels good to get those classes out of the way and free up more time, especially Bio. I was worried that the lab would cause scheduling conflicts so getting it out of the way is super nice.
Being on campus during the summer also allowed me to do a lot of work with the student org that I am in. I made a lot of progress in our project and it was a little easier scheduling time with the professors who were still on campus.
Athens is a different place in the summer for sure. There are fewer people on campus, and you can do pretty much whatever you want. I have a lot of friends that say they love Athens in the summer. The nightlife is a little different but there is still a solid amount of people, so it doesn’t feel like a ghost town.
Overall, the summer classes ended up being a good decision for me and I will consider them in the future.
