It meant giving up a summer of rest and relaxation for exams and term papers. However, it was an alternative many students took. Many students took a lighter course load in the the fall and spring semester, and to catch up on hours they took summer school. Other students took summer school, so that they could graduate in a shorter period of time. Although the number of students who enroll in summer school grew, students still enjoyed keeping in touch with friends that they would not normally see until the beginning of the fall semester. The problem with attending summer school though was getting the classes students needed was a tedious situation. Students found themselves waiting in add/drop lines that were approximately an hour and a half long. This year, however, the students found themselves tackling another problem- the new computer system. Class schedules were not received by mail until after the add/drop date; therefore, the students had to stand in two lines- one to actually get their schedule and the other to actually add/drop. Many students found summer school unbearable. Classes were two hours long, four days a week; however, many students found it easier to keep up with the course work, because they were learning the material on an everyday basis. Many students also claimed that the course work was less difficult in the summer than in the fall or spring semester. So, as the sun came up and many students headed for fun in the sun, many students looked forward to another day in the books. -Kristyn Roberts Al/hile waiting in the add/drop * * line, this student waits patiently for his turn.
