PAPPAS | Honoring Life and Lived Experiences 

For many of us, summer is a time to relax and decompress from the academic and social stressors of a typical semester at Cornell. For rising juniors and seniors, the stakes are a little higher. Many upperclassmen spend the fall and spring semesters vying for and, often, securing some impressive-looking job, internship or research experience for their summer. 

As a general rule, I like to keep my summers free from academic coursework. Before this year, I’ve so fortunately been able to avoid summer courses during my time here at Cornell. But with one more bio lab to take and with very little desire to take a bio lab during the semester, I was left with no other choice but to turn to Cornell’s Summer course list.
