Consider the following when making your plans:
- Look to build new skills or deepen ones you already have.
- Be productive.
- Challenge yourself to learn something new.
- Explore— discover what you do and don’t like.
- There are so many interesting things to do closer to home, you don’t have to go to the other side of the world.
What you get out of your summer is what matters most. It’s the perfect time for a little self discovery to figure out where your interests for the future lie. You may even come away with ideas for a great college essay.
