Summer classes have begun in earnest, and despite the campus feeling like a ghost town, students can be found hanging out between their long class hours.
Summer classes tend to have a more frantic pace to them, as students are expected to learn the material in a shortened amount of time. Session 1 runs from June 3 to August 9, Session 2 runs from June 3 to July 3, Session 3 runs from June 3 to July 24, and Session 4 runs from July 8 to August 7.
As to why anyone would take on such an endeavor, the students we communicated with had a wide variety of reasons.
