Summer Fun

So taking classes in the summer is certainly not the ideal/traditional respite. I would be the first to tell you that, but it does have its perks. Essentially, summers in Bloomington are low-key. The hustle-and-bustle is practically non-existent (except during such things as Taste of Bloomington) and you can ride your bike on (and off) campus without dodging people, cars, etc. Classes can be a little more intense since they are completed in a shorter amount of time, but the professors understand that and generally do a swell job of making the environment more bearable. Plus, it goes without saying that you're "knocking out" more classes, making your time shorter in school or allowing you to take less classes during the fall and/or spring. It's not for everyone, but if you're already considering it, you might as well give it a shot.
