Hello! My name is Shannon. I am a NOVA student currently working on earning my A.A.S. degree in Early Childhood Development. My goal is to earn my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education to become a teacher. I actually had always planned on doing Business Management but while in high school I got to be a volunteer in a local school for the summer. The opportunity was something I will always be grateful for because I realized business was not my calling. For this post, I'd like to share some opportunities that could be waiting for you this summer.
By working and saving during the summer, by fall you can spend more time focused on school work instead of trying to work around your job schedule. If possible, try for a job related to your degree to get a better understanding of what you could be doing in your future.
Both are a great opportunity to meet people who share your interests and add experience to your proficiency. It also shows that you made a choice to spend your summer using your skills, intellect, and time to make a difference.
Enjoy - Students on financial aid do not get the chance to take classes they find appealing if it does not work towards their degree. If you can afford it, summer is a good time to sign up for a course that interests you.
Finish early - For those who would like to spend as little time as possible in school, summer courses are a good chance to get work done while there are less people and distractions around.
There is so much that can be done during summer. For more fun ideas, visit 10 Ways for College Students to Spend Summer.
