Summer Plans

February 19th, 2018

The recent glimpse of springlike air coming into Kentucky has me daydreaming of warm summer days.  Summer is a great opportunity for students to take a break from their regularly scheduled academic activities and focus on developing themselves in other areas, or go deeper in an area of significant interest.  

Gaining experience through volunteer work, internships, travel, research and just taking time to read for pleasure are all important ways to reflect on who you are and begin to discover your purpose.  Of course, a little down time is important, too!

Many of our students already have their summer plans well under way.  My hope is that today’s article link from the College Board will help you brainstorm more ideas for summer activities that foster personal growth and development.  Making constructive use of much of your time in the summer should be your top consideration, and you’ll find myriad ways to do so.  

You can change the world.  Let your summer experiences help you build your capacity to do so.
