In truth, there’s not a whole lot of time between the end of the spring semester and the start of summer courses, also known at the University of Akron as “intersession.” But according to their schedule, students should have about eight (or more) days between handing in their final exams and starting an intersession course.

While taking any classes outside of the standard fall and spring semesters might seem just plain awful to some students, others leverage this opportunity to get ahead on their academic credits to graduate early or simply to lighten the load during the spring and fall semesters. If you’re in the latter group, then this blog post could be of good use to you.

Relax And Reset Yourself From EnVision Apartments

The long week that you’ll get between the end of the spring semester and the start of intersession is enough time to take it easy, relax, and reset yourself in preparation of handling more schoolwork. Read below about some ways that you can prepare for your next series of classes right from our Akron student apartments.

How To Spend Your (Short) Time Off After The Spring Semester


Eight days might not be that much time, but this long week is enough time to travel home and visit your folks. Maybe your buddies found really cheap plane tickets to a random but cool city, and they’ve invited you to go. If it aligns with your timeframe and you’re back in time to start your intersession course, then by all means, go with them!

Remember, you’ll have plenty of time to hang out and study at the University of Akron. Taking advantage of any travel opportunities, even if it’s just a quick day trip somewhere outside of Akron, can really help broaden your perspective and enrich your experience back on campus.

Clean Your Apartment

Okay, no one really wants to spend their time off cleaning. We get it; you’re exhausted from finals season and you just want to relax and hang out (or travel!) before your intersession course kicks off. But a clean, well-organized apartment space means that you’ll have a well-organized, sharp mind that’s ready to tackle your next course with confidence.

You signed up for your course to succeed in it, so it only makes sense to do things that will foster this success.

Do Whatever You Didn’t Have Time For During Finals Season

Finals season is the busiest and most stressful time of year for most college students. Had to cancel plans on a friend in order to make time for studying? Wanted to go to a club meeting but didn’t have time to attend? Though you may not be able to make up for all of these losses, you now have the time to do at least some of the things that you couldn’t a week or two ago. Have coffee with a friend, go out for a nice meal and drinks, go bowling, or do whatever makes you happy. This is your (very) short break and you deserve to spend it as you see fit.
