So Long to Summer

As September 22nd rolls around, autumn has officially arrived. Although I love fall and Halloween, I will definitely be missing summer. In fact, I think we all are. Personally, I’ll miss sleeping in. This semester my classes start at 8 and 9:30 am and I’m more of a sleep till 10 girl. Kaitlyn Gaffney, a Junior Writing Arts and English major, misses the time that she had in the summer: “I could take the time to read and play music and indulge in art the way that I can’t during the school year.

For some people, summer means going home to family and friends. Chastin Paley, a Junior transfer student, misses the social gatherings and outings she could take part in when home in Flemington, NJ. Haley Isabella, a Junior Elementary Ed major, likes the break that she gets over the summer: “I miss not having to go to class and stress about them.” The summer can also mean working. Carmen Grasso, a Senior RTF and Writing Arts major, works at a retirement home. “What do I miss about the summer? The extra hours and the bigger paycheck.”

What do you miss most about summer? And what are you looking forward to this semester?
