As of May 20th, we only have 16 days until it is officially: Summer! Yes, we are just as excited as you are. No more tests, quizzes, projects, homework, or exams seems like paradise from the stressful turmoil of the final weeks of this school year. But don’t worry, we’ve got a list of all the things to get you even more excited about summer and more motivated to finish off this year!
Caroline Lamoutte, rising senior, on volunteering at South Florida Baptist Hospital: “I look forward to my volunteer work because I get to work with and comfort people who all have one thing in common – they need medical help. And the cool thing is, I get the chance to be a part of it, without having gone to medical school yet!”
9. Summer jobs
Audrey Cooper, rising senior, on working at Surf Outfitters : “Working at Surf Outfitters is extremely beneficial and enjoyable not only because it provides me with all my summer necessities, but also I save up the money I earn and gain valuable work experience- which are both awesome perks in the long run.”
8. College Visits
