Student Life

It's August! Last chance for Summer Travel!

If you are staying in town this summer to take a few classes, work, participate in an internship, prepare for a graduate school oral exam or continue working on a dissertation, living in Ann Arbor during the summer can be challenging time for a variety of reasons. If many of your friends and roommates are gone for the summer you may:

  • find yourself fighting boredom or loneliness
  • experience increased stress as you must meet graduate school deadlines
  • find the fast pace of spring/summer classes stressful
  • find yourself with your evenings free after a day of work and may not know how to fill your time.
