is a blast. I'd recommend every student do one - take a class or two, get a job of some sort doing whatever, and get to know the community. I made friends with "townies," got my fair share of free drinks at the student favorite watering holes because I knew the bartenders on a first name basis, and made friends with classmates I hadn't had a chance to meet before. Minor league baseball, Lake Michigan, the East Race rapids, and trips to Chicago top it all off.

I'd go back to that summer leading into my senior year in a heartbeat.
