Summer time in New Orleans- a time for snoballs, Fly days, lounging around, free concerts, and countless festivals. And for some Loyno students, it’s a time to get ahead or catch up on classes. As hard as it is to stay motivated during the school year, it’s even more difficult to stay on top of things during the summer! Here’s some tips on how to soak up summer AND ace your classes!

1. Set up a schedule.

Summer students are taking less than a full time load of classes during the summer, so it is easy for time to slip away from you! Set aside a few hours a day to do your homework, and stick to it. If you know you have class from 9-11, plan on doing your homework from 11-1! That way, you get it out of the way AND you have the whole afternoon free. Win/win.

2. Get outside.

Find a shady spot (or sunny, if you’re working on a tan) and bring you books and a blanket outside! Make sure you pack a water bottle too- NOLA heat can getcha!

3. Take advantage of how not-crowded campus is.

The library has plenty of spots for you to come study! During the school year it’s often hard to get a study room or checkout a lab top because of how in demand these things are, but during the summer you can check them out whenever you like. Come get some solitary studying done in the lib!

4. Plan around the Festivals.

Virtually every weekend offers the chance to attend a festival in New Orleans, and you don’t want to miss any of them! So, plan accordingly. Do your work during the week, not the weekends, and you’ll never have to pass up the chance to get a shrimp po’boy or a plate of charbroiled oysters.

The library hours this summer are:

Monday – Thursday
8 am – 10 pm
8 am – 6 pm
10 am – 5 pm
11 am – 10 pm

How do you study during the summer? What’s your favorite study spot? What classes are you taking this summer?
