Summer break can be a few months of relaxation and full of traveling, but college can bring other opportunities into your life! This summer I will be spending my summer in Champaign, doing a lot of different things.
I am happy to say that I will continue blogging while I stay on campus over the summer. I’ll update you all on what’s going on around campus and my take on my first-ever summer here at school.
Also, as a junior right now I am thinking about my post-graduation plans and what career I want to pursue in the future. Over break I will begin to apply to dental schools and prepare myself for any upcoming interviews! This seems like a daunting task, but it is nice to have resources on campus, like the career center, to give me tips and advice on how to strengthen my personal statement and resume.
On top of that, I will be taking a summer course at school. The option of taking courses during breaks gives students, like me, a chance to get ahead in my curriculum while still getting the full experience of a regular semester-long course. I am grateful for this opportunity that gives me the option to potentially graduate early, too!
While doing all of this, I will be working as an Illinois Student Admissions Representative (iSTAR) full-time. This lets me to make a few extra bucks during break so I can save it for future spending!
So, looks like I’ll be a busy gal this summer! There are numerous opportunities to get involved on campus during breaks. Whatever interests you, Illinois has it!
