Rising Junior Seth McElroy sees the next few months a little differently than others. The
“I’m sure I’ll be a little board, but looking forward right now, I feel like I can come up with a bunch of things to keep me occupied” McElroy said.
Graduating senior Erin Sousa reflected on her past summers while at GW.
“I went home between my freshman and sophomore years and it was nice at first. But after being at school, your parents asking where you are and such, gets old!” Sousa said. “You just have so much more freedom at school so although it's nice to go home on occasion, being able to be in DC and do everything you don't have time to do during the year is an amazing opportunity.”
With 12 more days at home, I’m content for now. But I’m excited about returning to DC for my second summer there. About.com has their own summer suggestions and one girl tells her summer plan story in detail. I’m curious to know what you’ll be doing this summer? Home? DC? Abroad?
