Read these tips and tricks to ensure you have the summer of your life.

Summer's here! And we want to help you have your most successful summer yet. Whether you're taking classes over the summer semester, looking for a summer job, or taking time to relax, we've put together some tips and tricks to ensure you have a summer of success.


Sort through old papers, clean out your backpack, rearrange your bookshelves, and get organized. Invest in a new agenda or download a great time management app on your phone to help you find a routine that works for you, and stick with it. Be sure to write down any important deadlines, like campus orientation or fee payment deadlines, and set reminders so you're on track for whatever September has in store.

Stay active

It's easy to relax over the summer - lounge by the pool, take a quick cat nap, and did anyone say, Netflix? But be sure to take advantage of warmer weather and get outside. Our Sport and Recreation department offers great summer drop-ins like beach volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, ping pong, and even cricket!


It can be hard to find time to jump into a new book during the hustle and bustle of a busy semester. Take time over the summer to delve into a new book or re-read an old favourite. You can even stop by the university library over the summer to pick up a great new read.

However you spend your summer we wish you a good time full of great memories!
