1. Earn a Little, Save a Little

Now that the learning is over, the earning should become the main focus for students over the summer. To help set yourself up for future success, find some work and begin to save so you won’t be searching for loose change when the new school year hits. Create a budget, stick to it and think forward to the future expenses that are expected for the upcoming semester.

2. Get/Stay in Shape

There’s no question that summer brings freedom from looming assignments and course work.  You should spend this extra source of free time actively through personal improvement. Running, lifting or any other form of exercise is perfect for staying in shape during bathing suit weather.

3. Be Adventurous

While the main goal of your summer should be productivity, this time of year is fit to explore territory outside the normal routine. From being a tourist in your own town, to finding a local hiking trail, get out and enjoy the greatness Mother Nature has to offer.

4. Learn Something New

I know the last thing on any college student’s mind is learning something knew they aren’t forced to, however, any new form of hobby or interesting trade and tactic can allow for new friends who are interested in unique activities. They could offer you new and exciting adventures.

5. Stay Current on Current Events

It’s a fact that current college students are the next generation to make an impact on the world. No better way to stay informed in order to gain a better understanding of the world around us than to follow current events. By knowing these events maybe you could find your passion or a new approach to old subjects.

6. Treat Yo Self

Finally! The school year is over where there is no overwhelming stress of constant assignments and a never-ending carousel of events pulling you in every direction. Take time over the summer to treat yourself for all the hard work you put forth during the school year and now that you’re earning some money, the opportunities are endless.
