After months of hard work, shoveling snow, and studying, what could be more welcome than warm summer air?
Next week is finals week at Penn State Behrend, and many students will then be done with classes until fall.
We asked students how they plan to spend their summer vacation.
Tara Sitter, junior, Finance and Accounting: “I plan to travel and go to a lot of concerts. I want to have fun before I have to go into the real world next year.”
Tim Vincent, sophomore, Mechanical Engineering: “I’m just going to wing it.”
Rachael Hazen, sophomore, Kinesiology: “I’m going to Austin, Texas, where I’ll be a camp coordinator.”
Daniel Valverde, sophomore, Economics: “I’m going back home to Miami.”
David Graham, junior, Finance: “I have a summer internship at Northwest Savings Bank in Franklin.”
Mitchel Meszaros, first-year student, Mechanical Engineering: “I have a summer internship with PennDOT in Meadville.”
Abbie Schuster, sophomore, Accounting: “I’m not sure yet. I might have an internship, or I’ll be a camp counselor.”
Collin Mangan, sophomore, Plastics Engineering Technologies: “I’ll be working, either at an internship or somewhere else.”
Casey Kern, junior, Interdisciplinary Business with Engineering Studies: “I’ll be working all summer at my dad’s company, which builds sewage treatment plants. I hope to work as a project manager.”
Theresa Guarriello, first-year student, Architectural Engineering: “I plan on working, sleeping, and getting ready for school to start back up in the fall.”
Ryan Rendon, sophomore, Mechanical Engineering Technology: “Honestly, I’ll be going to concerts, enjoying backyard fires, and doing anything the military (reserves) throws at me.”
