Another Semester Down =)

Fa La La La La, Hooray! Another semester down! This one wasn’t so easy for me. For the first time I tackled a five credit course and I survived. Now I feel like I can take on any class:) I don’t know about you all, but this term was full of unexpected surprises… and don’t get me wrong, they were not all good ones. But look, we all made it through. The words I spoke early on in the semester held true for me. It was well worth the effort and time put into each class so that I could finish them strong.

Summer break is now here. Maybe its only for a week for those of you starting up again on the 18th of May. Or its 6 weeks for those of you taking classes the second half of the summer. In any case, remember to enjoy each and every day to the fullest. Go out and do something spontaneous (safely)!

I wish you all a restful and successful summer!

Food Service For The Summer Term

If you’re wondering what the summer hours for the café are, here they are!

  • May 11-15 – ALL  café locations will be CLOSED

So, please don’t show up hoping for food, because there will be  none. Don’t worry! It’s only for that week. After that, each campus will have their own special hours. Yay!

  • Bradenton Campus: (Pardon our dust) Their café will be under renovation all summer, but their “Bite-size café” in building 14 (salad bar, sandwiches, grill items available) will be open: Monday-Friday 8:30AM to 1:00PM
  • Venice Campus: Their café will have smoothies available and will be open: Monday-Thursday 9:00AM to 1:00PM 

  • Lakewood Ranch Campus: Their café will be closed all summer. :(

I hope this helps! Have a great sumer everyone!

Summer Is Here!

Summer has always been my favorite season. No class for me! I take a break, so when I come back for fall I am relaxed, ready, and determined. I do plan to work over summer, while also enjoying myself. I would like to spend a lot of time with my family. During the semester I get so caught up with homework and studying, I don’t pay as much attention to them as I would like. I am also really excited to explore Florida! This is the first summer I have my own car (and gas money) so I am going to venture off into different activities and just have fun. I work so hard during the semester because I know summer will be my time to relax. What are your summer plans?
