Why do students take summer courses at UW-Superior?
"It was a little nerve-wracking taking an online course - not being sure how you get in contact with the instructor or how much work it's going to be. I just didn't want it to overwhelm my summer or anything like that. But most of my teachers were really easy to get a hold of. They were really good about checking their emails and making sure that they were answering and replying in a timely fashion." - Paige Ford, Accounting, Finance, and Management major
"I was inspired to take summer classes so that I could finish my degree sooner. I felt like my classmates were more involved, and the classes were a lot smaller, so it was easier to get to know one another. Since the semester is shorter, I was still able to enjoy my summer. I think that summer classes are a great tool to help you fast-track your degree. If it weren't for summer classes, I would have had to pay for another semester of classes." - Lexie Omundson Barcus, Interdisciplinary Studies: Marketing Communication
"Many students do not live in the area, or work commitments prohibit enrolling in face-to-face classes, during the summer. For that reason, general education courses such as GEOG 100 and 102 online provide the flexibility to meet student needs." - Dr. Randy Gabrys-Alexson, Professor, Geography
"I enjoy the fast-paced atmosphere of Summer College. It allows you to get through classes fast while still learning all the information. I also found it very beneficial being able to take a class to catch up on my education path while not taking much time out of my summer break." - Nick Fratzke, Business - Marketing major
"I like that Summer College is short-term. In class, you focus on the major points, and you have more time to study during the summer." Also, campus during the summer is quiet, and it is easy to contact and connect with professors because there are fewer students. - Su Kyung (Suzie) Chung, Business Administration major
"[Summer College] would help me finish my degree faster, thus cutting my expenses and allowing me to get out into the real, working world that much quicker." - Mandee Akason, Business Administration - Marketing and International Business major
"I would take summer courses because it would allow me to graduate sooner." - Alyssa Nelson, Business Management major
