Most students would agree with me when I say that summer break is the best of all! Though we all love Exeter, it is kind of nice to break away from the scene every once in a while. I particularly love it, because I have the time to do many programs out of state that I am unable to do during the school year. Now, my summer schedule is packed with extracurriculars. I will be doing everything from Spanish emersion programs, to Journalism workshops, to law programs, and several shadows of professionals in each industry.
Today was the last day of my Journalism workshop at the renown Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University that spanned over four days. Here, I learned about writing newspapers, different columns, blogging, broadcasting, broadcasting, and more! I definitely learned a lot and my print news writing skills have improved tremendously.
Here, I also made some amazing connections! I really suggest that though tempting, you don’t spend your summers wasting away and just sleeping. Get out there and try to improve your skills there are many programs out there. You can apply during the summer, or even earlier during spring term. Earlier is better, especially if you are looking for financial aid. I will keep you all up to date with my summer achievements!
Until next time,
