By taking classes in the summer you’ll experience smaller class sizes with more opportunities to connect with your classmates and your professors.

My professor did a good job teaching the course, and having a small class size and only focusing on one class made it very easy to learn the materials. – Junior

Give yourself the competitive advantage of taking more advanced courses in the fall and spring by completing general education courses (BGPs) over the summer.

I took summer classes to get classes I had to take done faster, to make room for classes that I really wanted to take during the normal school year. – Sophomore

Participating in an internship, study abroad trip or research project while taking a class or two online over the summer can set you up to graduate early and begin your career sooner.

Everything was easy to do and well done. I learned a lot in my internship and the university made it extremely easy to communicate and complete my school work from off campus. – Junior
