The online version of a university newspaper has published an article on how to adjust to the school’s policy of running classes year round. Unlike most universities, this school does not have summers off. Students take quarterly classes. The paper explains that students can opt to have summers off but they will graduate one term late. The paper explains the university policy as a way to get students used to the real world, which typically does not have summers off at work.
- Drexel runs on quarters yearly, and taking one off would delay graduation
- The students are now adults and vacation time must be managed accordingly
- If you need help scheduling reach out to your advisor
“Summer class is rough at first, because growing up in the United States, students have always (or almost always) had their summers off from kindergarten through 12th grade”
