The Spring Semester has ended, so now is a great time to reflect on the past school year and make plans for improving and enhancing your college experience next year. Would you like to boost your GPA, learn new skills, or tap into your leadership potential? Take advantage of the summer semester to set new goals and execute a plan of action to have a rewarding experience in the Fall. Check out the tips below to get started.
- Take a Summer Class, or Two
Summer classes move quickly and meet more often over the course of a week. This gives students a chance to be immersed in the subject matter and complete a course in less time. Taking a summer class can also help you to get ahead with graduation requirements or get back on track if needed. Register for Summer Classes now.
- Academic Planning
Take a look at your major map to plan courses for each semester to stay on track for graduation. Schedule a meeting with your academic advisor to ask questions about pre-requisites or other requirements for entering and completing your major. You can also run your own academic evaluation to stay up to date with your academic progression.
- Career Exploration
Spend some time updating your resume and exploring career options with the many tools offered by University Career Services. Update your Portfolium account with all of your experiences and achievements from the past school year.
- Look Ahead to Fall Semester
Seek opportunities to build your leadership skills and have meaningful involvement. Log into the Panther Involvement Network (PIN) to find what events have already been planned for the upcoming semester. From the more than 400 student organizations at Georgia State, join an organization that fits your interests or career aspirations. Add getting involved in Leadership Programs to your do list for the Fall semester.
