At my past job we had a chant called "Motivation Check". Its purpose was to remind us to keep a positive attitude although we may not always be in positive or ideal situations (or at least that is how I took it). I have it in my mind as July begins. Oh July! I am taking TWO summer classes this month; one Counseling Theory class and an Intro to Student Affairs class. I have to get ready to get back into the school/study swing. I am looking forward to the classes but it is a bummer that there aren't earlier classes offered in the summer. I will be in class on Tuesday-Thursday from 4:15-10pm until August 1st YIKES! However, I will keep a positive attitude and be grateful that the classes are offered so I can get into my practicum class this fall.
Various programs here at WCU have prerequisites that must be completed before you continue on to other classes. Do not make my mistake and not figure out those classes ahead of time and you will be able to avoid summer classes (unless you enjoy them). Speak to your advisor to make sure you are taking the correct classes at the correct times.
Anyway, if you are in the West Chester area this summer, come visit me in the Office of Graduate Studies. :)
I hope you enjoy your summer. Please feel free to share the awesome things you have been doing on your break. If you are taking summer classes along with me let me know which ones. We can keep each other motivated.

|After the initial start, summer classes won't be as bad as they seem :)|
