With the end of the semester on the horizon, students are preparing for finals. It’s been a long year for everyone and people are ready for the semester to be over so they can go home and spend time with friends and family. However, Pacific is offering summer classes for students who want to get ahead of their credit requirements or want to graduate earlier.
The first day of summer courses begins on May 18th, after the graduation ceremony on May 15th. Summer housing will be made available in Gilbert Hall for students who are taking their courses in person until their designated end term date. There will be around three terms this semester, with a week break in between.
“I registered to take Anatomy and Physiology I June 1st and Anatomy and Physiology 2 in July,” said student Makenna Sawyer. “I’ve heard the class is pretty hardcore and the lab has a lot of hands-on work.”
Students at Pacific University will choose to take a summer course to get ahead of their studies and want to acquire enough credits to get ahead of their work. Sawyer will go to class every day for one hour, and two hours for lab.
“It’s a little scary to think that it’s a whole semester carried into a month and that the lab will be remote,” Sawyer said. “That is one of the reasons I am wondering if I should just wait to take it during fall and spring term.”
If you ever want to take summer classes here at Pacific to get ahead of your class and get the credits you need, talk to or email your advisor about courses to take for your specific major. –Rush Williams
